Our post-graduate first year residency (PGY-1) in Managed Care is an innovative postgraduate program of clinical experience in the managed care setting. The managed care resident will gain a broad range of experience within a Coordinated Care Organization (CCO) within multiple practice settings. As a member of an assigned CCO Clinical Advisory Board, residents work closely with providers, support staff, medical residents and community partners. The resident pharmacist will participate in the direct management of high-risk Medicaid and Medicaid patients. As a foundation for successful growth each resident will receive a six week intensive orientation to the program and to CareOregon as a coordinated care organization (CCO). In August after licensure is obtained each resident will be assigned a Coordinated Care Organization within CareOregon to focus on. The Coordinated Care Organization (CCO) will be the “umbrella” patient population in which the resident will apply managed care principles in new, novel ways to improve CCO community health. Our PGY-1 Managed Care Pharmacy Residency prepares clinical pharmacists to become specialists in pharmacy benefit management optimized towards high value targeted population management. Through this process residents will produce/track positive health outcomes for vulnerable Medicaid and Special Needs Medicare patients towards specific pharmacy benefit and quality metrics. The resident pharmacist will know how to administer the pharmacy benefit to maximize the impact of the healthcare team across the continuum of health, illness and advanced illness through medications. In addition, the curriculum allows the pharmacist to pursue specific interests that best complement their career goals. This is achieved by choosing from a variety of core and elective clinical rotations that are structured to build upon previous learning experiences. Clinical expertise in other subspecialty areas will be developed through elective rotations in additional specialized clinic settings. Other opportunities for the resident include precepting Doctor of Pharmacy students, as well as professional advocacy through state and national associations.
