Residency Program Director:

Kellie Kippes, Pharm.D., BCPS, BCACP

The Department of Pharmacy Services at the University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers is recruiting applicants for a one-year PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency.

Clinical Practice Experiences

Clinical experiences in the PGY2 Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency will include core practice experiences that will be longitudinal in nature and focus on direct patient care in the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model and elective rotations tailored to the individual's interest. Core rotations take place in our University of Michigan Health System PCMH clinics, where our ambulatory care pharmacists practice as part of an interdisciplinary team under a collaborative practice agreement. Elective rotations are also longitudinal, and include opportunities in anticoagulation, cardiology, chronic kidney disease, hematology/oncology supportive care, oral chemotherapy, psychiatry, solid organ transplant, and transitions of care.


A multitude of teaching opportunities are available to the resident, who will receive a faculty appointment as a Clinical Instructor at the University of Michigan College of Pharmacy. Teaching opportunities include our Doctor of Pharmacy Disease State Management Course, actively precepting fourth-year Advanced Pharmacy Practice Students on clinical rotations, and teaching opportunities in didactic and Team-Based Learning teaching paradigms. A teaching series and teaching certificate program is available in addition to opportunities to provide interdisciplinary presentations and in-services. Many residents also actively participate in and precept extracurricular activities in the community for our College of Pharmacy students.

Research and Publications

The resident will participate in the development and completion of a mentored longitudinal residency research project. Experience in protocol writing, data collection and analysis, manuscript preparation, and publication will be provided. Opportunities for development of writing and presentation skills are also available through completion of a writing project suitable for publication, a major pharmacotherapy continuing education presentation on a topic of the resident’s choosing, and presentation opportunities at local, regional, and national meetings.
