Courtney Gamston is a 2013 graduate from the Harrison School of Pharmacy. After spending a year with the Auburn University Pharmaceutical Care Center as an ambulatory care resident, she accepted a faculty position at the Edward Via College of Osteopathic medicine as Assistant Professor and Discipline Chair for Pharmacology. She currently also holds the position of Ambulatory Care Clinician with the AUPCC.

Her current research focuses on establishing, improving, and maintaining sustainable ambulatory care services in a pharmacist-led primary care clinic. Areas of focus include prediabetes, diabetes, obesity, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. Gamston's research is focused not only to the provision of medication therapy management but also on patient education services that improve self-care behaviors and overall health. Another facet of this work is improving the education of pharmacy and DO students in the realm of patient education and medication/disease state management in the ambulatory care setting.

The goal of this research is twofold: (1) to establish models of ambulatory care practice for implementation in a variety of settings and (2) to enhance the education and experience of pharmacy and DO students in order to prepare them to operate independently in an ambulatory care setting.
