The Infectious Diseases Residency (PGY-2) is a one-year training program designed to provide an opportunity for the resident to develop the necessary skills for specialized practice in infectious diseases.
The program is designed to develop skilled clinical pharmacists to practice as infectious diseases specialists in academic or community hospitals, clinical faculty members or pursue fellowship training. Required rotations consist of infectious diseases (ID) general consult service, endocarditis consult service, bone and joint infection consult service, ID outpatient clinic (including HIV), pediatric ID consults, solid organ transplant ID consults, oncology ID consults, and microbiology. The resident can choose from a number of elective rotations to build and enhance competencies. The resident is involved longitudinally in antimicrobial stewardship and antimicrobial formulary management. Additional experiences for the resident include a research project, drug use evaluation, and participation in pharmacy education conferences as well as the Department of Infectious Diseases case conference, grand rounds, and HIV conference.
