Map and Directions
The USC School of Pharmacy recently completed a $12 million grant as part of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation Healthcare Innovation Award (CMMI HCIA).The knowledge and experience from this program, and nearly 30 years of primary care practice experience in multiple health systems including VA, private practice, and Federally Qualified Health Centers, has been incorporated into an Advanced Practice Pharmacist training program meeting the California Board of Pharmacy certification requirements.This program will provide participants with key insights into how to provide a high-impact comprehensive medication management (CMM) service aligned with health system priorities.Advanced Practice Pharmacist skills will be applied to managing metabolic syndrome, depression, and asthma/COPD.The program involves 20 hours of online education and 8 hours of live instruction that includes motivational interviewing, active case management, and 4 OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) stations including one where each participant will provide CMM for a standardized patient.

Target Audience: Health-system pharmacists interested in pursuing advanced practice skills 

Goals: To prepare participants to identify, stratify, evaluate, and manage high-risk patients with poorly-controlled chronic conditions
