The purpose of this PGY2 Infectious Diseases Residency Program is to develop pharmacists adept in clinical management of infectious diseases and antimicrobial stewardship. The graduates of our PGY2 program will be prepared to practice as clinical specialists in infectious diseases, manage antimicrobial stewardship programs, and precept residents and students in infectious diseases pharmacotherapy.
Our two PGY 2 Pharmacy residents will progress through a series of customized rotations and longitudinal learning experiences during the 12-month period. Our rotations are completed as a mix of 5-week focused blocks and longitudinal experiences. These blocks include an orientation block, seven required rotation blocks, and two elective blocks. Residents will have an antimicrobial stewardship service commitment of every 3rd weekend.
