Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency Program

Family Medical Clinic Bandana Square St Paul MN

The Allina Health Ambulatory Care Pharmacy PGY1 Residency provides an opportunity for pharmacists to further their clinical, practice management and teaching skills in a warm, supportive environment. Residents will be able to partner with patients to improve health in a variety of disease states by providing Comprehensive Medication Management. Allina Health’s residency program is a member of the University of Minnesota’s larger PGY1 multisite program providing residents with group learning opportunities, teaching certificates, research project assistance and the support of co-residents, among other benefits.       

Allina currently has eight metro pharmacists providing clinical pharmacy services to patients. These pharmacists see patients in 21 clinic locations and work under a robust Collaborative Practice Agreement in coordination with providers. Visits occur in primary care clinic offices, over the phone, virtually and in the patient’s home. Allina pharmacists are an integral part of the care management Advanced Care Team (ACT), an interdisciplinary group of professionals that includes registered nurses, licensed social workers and non-clinical care guides. The team’s focus is to improve transitions of care and reduce hospital readmissions. Additionally, some of the pharmacists are members of the Allina Health Complex Care for Seniors Program (CCSP). This home-based program focuses on improving health of geriatric patients through an interdisciplinary approach.

Allina Health is a not-for-profit health care system that cares for patients from beginning to end-of-life through its 90+ clinics, 10 hospitals / 13 campuses, 15 retail pharmacies, and 52 rehabilitation locations. We provide services in the Twin Cities metro area and various greater Minnesota and Wisconsin locations. Residents will spend a majority of their time caring for patients at Allina Health Shoreview and Bandana Square Clinics and providing home visits in the St. Paul and north metro region.
