Anyone know where to search for ambulatory care/other types of residencies? I have been browsing ASHP's residency directory but I mostly see hospital/managed care.

I've been looking around this year. So far I found 3: 1 in Virginia (affiliated with Shenandoah) and 2 in NC (affiliated with Campbell). These sound like great residencies (I especially like 1 of the Campbell ones), but not sure if doing one of those narrows my hireability too much.

Look at the community pharmacy residency programs affiliated with the University of Washington. Only a couple of them are associated with retail pharmacies - the other programs (there are 5 total) are all ambulatory care/clinic based.

Ya into Veterans affair (VA) they have alot of amb care and the good thing is that as long as you get your license in any state (that is you take your law exam in the state of your choice) it is considered valid cause the VA goes by federal regulations so as long as you get licensed in the state that you want to get licensed in say NY you can do a residency in like Hawaii and it still count.

Say a residency program you like is in Hawaii most likely you need to get licensed in hawaii to become a resident there, but for the VA that rule doesnt apply.

Some residencies are combo residencies and might not come up when you search amb care so if you have a particular geographical region in mind, check all the residencies there - esp managed care.
