The resident at Goodrich Pharmacy will be responsible for much of the patient care that takes place at our site. During their residency year, the resident will spend part of their time in the clinic providing patient care services including MTM and disease state management with the use of 9 different collaborative practice agreements. As leaders in community pharmacy MTM, Goodrich Pharmacy expects the resident to uphold this standard and continue to expand this service in our five locations. In doing so, they will become proficient in using multiple billing platforms and develop the skills to start, manage and grow an MTM program. The pharmacy also collaborates with multiple local mental health providers to offer pharmacogenomic testing and education for patients.
They will also be responsible for marketing and managing our vaccination program, as well as our medication adherence program. The resident conducts regular chart reviews for local assisted living facilities and provides regular patient presentations to their residents.
