PGY2 Pharmacy Residency in Neurology

This program is currently in candidate status with ASHP and is expected to be the first ASHP accredited neurology residency program in the nation. This specialty residency provides a comprehensive experience in contemporary neurology pharmacy practice. The residency will practice clinical pharmacy in neurology and neurosurgical patients in an acute setting and in the ambulatory neurology clinics. Experiences in epilepsy, stroke, movement disorders, headache, general neurology, and neurobehavior disorders are included.

PGY2 Pharmacy Residency in Ambulatory Care

This program is currently in pre-candidate status with ASHP. Primarily established in VAGLAHS’s Homeless PACT (Patient Aligned Care Team), this specialty residency will focus on providing care to the underserved. As one of seven VA facilities designated as a Center of Excellence in Primary Care Education, the pharmacy resident will participate in providing care through the iA-HPACT team (Interprofessional Academic-HPACT). iAHPACT was created as a learning lab to promote the transformation of VA into interprofessional learning experiences to prepare trainees to practive, lead, and thrive in team-based health-systems. Additional experiences in select subspecialty clinics will be integrated to ensure a well-rounded experience.

The postdoctoral residency program at VA Los Angeles Ambulatory Care Center (LAACC) is excited to offer one full-time, year-long postdoctoral position specializing in Primary Care-Mental Health Integration and Substance Use Disorders (PCMHI/SUD). The postdoctoral residency program is not currently accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association (APA). The selected resident in this position will receive year-long advanced clinical training in clinical psychology with an emphasis in both PC-MHI and SUDs, and will also have opportunities for program development, supervision, consultation, and research/program evaluation. Supervision for the postdoctoral resident will be provided through the two PC-MHI psychologists on staff and the psychologist who directs the Addictive Behaviors Clinic, with possible supplemental supervision by the Women’s Mental Health psychologist and/or other members of our mental health staff. We are seeking qualified applicants with interest and experience in Primary Care-Mental Health Integration and Substance Use Disorders to apply

In 2017, we were also awarded a temporary one year, full-time postdoctoral residency position in Trauma Psychology and Women’s Mental Health but it is not clear at this time if we will be granted the funding for this position for the 2018-2019 training year. We will announce any available positions in this emphasis area and list all available positions on the Universal Psychology Postdoctoral Directory (UPPD). We also welcome any interested applicants to contact the training director to inquire about availability.
