PHA 4506 - Indigent Care

4 Credit Hours
This elective rotation exposes students to the direct patient care model. The Samaritan Gardens Community Health Center provides medical care to the indigent persons not eligble for Medical Assistance (Medicaid) or Medicare programs, and to relieve the financial burden of the county and local governments for providing medical care to these persons. Each preceptor is responsible for the care of patients at their clinical site and provides drug therapy management services in collaboration with physicians and other health care providers. The types of patients and disease states encountered by the learner will vary, based upon the individual site. In general students should be prepared to provide education and collaboratively manage patients with: allergic rhinitis, arthritis, asthma, benign prostatic hypertrophy, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, contraception, depression, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, gastroesophageal reflux disease, gout, heart failure, HIV/AIDS, hypertension, osteoporosis, peptic ulcer disease, sexually transmitted diseases, sinusitis, thromboembolic disorders, thyroid disorders, upper respiratory tract infections, and urinary tract infections.
