In-Clinic Rx Post Graduate Year One Residency Program

Established in 2018 | ASHP Accredited Program

Our Purpose

The purpose is to build upon the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to develop community-based pharmacist practitioners with diverse patient care, leadership, and education skills who are eligible to pursue advanced training opportunities including postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies and professional certifications.


The Community Pharmacy Residency Program at Eastern Carolina Medical Center was granted accreditation by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP)/ American Pharmacists Association (APhA) in August 2020.

Clinical Rotations

Remote Patient Monitoring

Our clinic currently has over 500 patients enrolled in remote patient monitoring services. These services allow patients to check their blood pressure, pulse, blood sugar, and/or weight in their home and the readings are immediately transmitted to the clinic. Our residents review all patients’ data and critical alerts daily using their clinical judgment. Residents collaborate with the physicians to make medication changes for the patients and provide lifestyle and medication counseling. Through this pharmacist run program we have seen a significant decrease in CHF hospitalizations, and decreases in A1c and average blood pressures.

Diabetes Education

Eastern Carolina Medical Center is an ADCES accredited diabetes education program. Our residents become professional diabetes educators and manage patients with diabetes through lifestyle modifications, diet counseling, and medication changes. The collaborative practice agreement in place allows our pharmacists to independently make changes to patients’ diabetes drug regimens. We offer individual counseling sessions as well as group diabetes classes.

Chronic Disease Management through Incident To Visits

Incident to billing allows auxiliary personnel and NPPs to report services as if they were performed by a physician. Additionally, there are specific requirements to bill incident to services. Specific incident to requirements include a CPA with the provider.

    Spravato Administration

    Eastern Carolina Medical Center is a certified outpatient Spravato treatment center. We are one of the only primary clinics in the country to offer Spravato to patients. After meeting with the physician, patients are followed by and treated weekly or biweekly by our pharmacists and residents. Our residents are experts in the intranasal administration and monitoring of Spravato, as well as completing the required REMS documents and the process to get a patient started with treatment.
