This elective course focuses on contemporary topics in ambulatory care pharmacy practice.  Clinical pharmacy topics include anticoagulation, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), congestive heart failure, contraception, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, hypertension, osteoporosis, tobacco cessation, and transitions of care.  Student pharmacists will hone higher order thinking skills by applying foundational therapeutic knowledge and evidence-based practice to clinical case studies.  Course instructors with expertise in each clinical topic area will facilitate team-based learning and group discussions.  Class sessions will consist of a team-based quiz and large group discussion in the first hour, team-based synthesis of evidence-based clinical case notes in the second one and one-half hour, and a large group discussion in the final half hour.
