Medication Therapy Management Residency

MTM ResidentThis 12-month PGY-1 pharmacy residency program in Medication Therapy Management, or MTM, provides the resident with the knowledge and skills necessary to deliver evidence-based patient-specific telephonic MTM services to various patient populations, including geriatric populations. MTM services are provided to patients to help resolve health-related and medication-related problems, optimize medication use for improved patient outcomes, and promote patient self-management of medications and disease states. MTM services include the offering a comprehensive medication review, or CMR, to eligible patients with the provision of a personalized medication list and medication action plan mailed to the patient that accepts such services. Services also include quarterly reviews for each patient that participated in the CMR. Prescribers are notified, via facsimile or telephone, of any clinically significant medication or health-related problems identified during each review.

The program also provides an opportunity for the resident to gain experience in academia, which includes participating in a unique teaching certificate program that offers experiences both in small group instruction and didactic lectures in the University of Florida College of Pharmacy curriculum. The resident is expected to complete an IRB-approved research project of publishable quality, and present the results at local, regional, or state pharmacy meetings.

Primary Practice Sites

The residency training takes place at the University of Florida Center for Quality Medication Management, or CQM. The CQM was created in 2010 and offers a residency program as well as an advanced experiential practice, or APPE, site for fourth-year student pharmacists. The residency program presents a unique and exciting opportunity for the resident to participate in a highly innovative and rapidly growing field of pharmacy practice. The CQM provides medication therapy management and star performance measure services to patients telephonically allowing the center to reach patients locally, regionally, and nationally. The patient population served by the CQM includes patients enrolled in Medicaid, Medicare, and commercial health plans. Currently, the center has two locations with one being in the UF East Campus Office Building in Gainesville, FL and the other located in the UF Research and Academic Center at Medical City in Lake Nona, FL. More information can be found on the CQM website.
