PROGRAM FEATURES

The Loma Linda University PGY1 Behavioral Health Integration Incentive Program (BHIIP) – Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency Program provides its residents with a unique experience in the ambulatory care setting to work directly with patients who have mental health conditions and concomitant chronic diseases.

The PGY1 BHIIP – Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency Program is funded through the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to improve physical and behavioral health outcomes, care delivery efficiency, and patient experience by establishing fully integrated care for patients with chronic medical and behavioral health issues.

The residents will develop the knowledge, attitude, and skills necessary to become an advanced pharmaceutical care practitioner. The program is structured to suit the individual needs of the resident and to provide an environment of quality training and pharmaceutical care.

The PGY1 BHIIP – Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Residency Program offers residents more than a dozen choices for their three elective rotations. With inpatient and outpatient rotations available such as pediatrics, oncology, transplant, and emergency medicine, Loma Linda University can provide the resident with an engaging and diverse year of clinical experiences.
