Faculty, Pharmacy Practice (Non-tenure)

The Department of Pharmacy Practice at ACPHS invites applications from qualified candidates to join the College for a non-tenure track appointment. Consideration of rank will be commensurate with experience.

The faculty member will develop a patient-centered, team based, clinical pharmacy practice site. This position will be based in ambulatory medicine with the Albany Medical Center’s Internal Medicine Group (IMG), a faculty practice affiliate of the Albany Medical College.

Two of the physicians are board-certified Geriatricians and one has a home care practice that serves 11 counties. One of our physicians is board-certified in Obesity Medicine. The practice serves as the outpatient training site for half of the Internal Medicine Categorical residents (23 residents, PGY1-3), Geriatrics Fellows, Medical and Physician Assistant students. Residents engage in a weekly academic half day (“team based learning” ) onsite and this has been a great opportunity to engage interprofessional education. Medical students in all four years of training will rotate at IMG starting in 2023. IMG is an NCQA certified medical home and participates in Primary Care First. The practice also has a psychologist and cardiologist who are scheduled patient visits weekly at the site. IMG is a mature but growing practice, last year we saw 15614 follow ups and 1883 new patients. The practice accepts a wide range of insurance policies including Fidelis, NY State managed care.
