Jessica Buchheit

Pharm.D.

Director of Clinical Services

Kirksville Pharmacy, Kirksville, MO

Her Story
Dr. Buchheit graduated from the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy in 2015. She completed her PGY1 Pharmacy Residency in 2016 at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Her current involvement in ASHP includes being newly appointed to the Section Advisory Group on Medication Therapy Management in the Community.

Facility
Dr. Buchheit is currently establishing retail and clinical pharmacy services in a patient centered medical home in a rural community in Northeast Missouri. She is working closely with the providers at the clinic to establish collaborative practice agreements to meet the needs of the community, start a transitional care management clinic, and enhance prescription access to community residents.

Recent Significant Projects
Aside from getting a new pharmacy and clinical services up and running, Dr. Buchheit was recently published in Critical Pathways in Cardiology for her work on adding idarucizumab to the formulary of a large academic medical center in Boston, MA.

Becoming Involved in ASHP
“Like many before me have said, ASHP is my professional home. I find that I get more out of my involvement with ASHP then I do with any other professional organization. As far as resources and networking opportunities go, ASHP provides me with everything I need and the things I didn't even realize I needed!”

Advice for Someone New to Specialty Area
“Invest in attending the ASHP Summer Meeting! I attended my first summer meeting this past spring and it significantly impacted my practice, provided me with tools for implementing and billing for pharmacist run clinical services, and afforded valuable networking opportunities.”

Value of ASHP
“Invaluable! The networking opportunities alone are enough to provide you with the resources to be successful both personally and professionally.”

“Adding to the medical literature, providing a voice on Capitol Hill, and advocating for the best and safest patient care are a few areas to show the value of ASHP for the profession.”
