The purpose of our PGY2 Infectious Diseases Residency Program is to develop pharmacists adept in clinical management of infectious diseases and antimicrobial stewardship. Residents will be integrated as core members into an antimicrobial stewardship team of three ID pharmacy specialists overseeing antibiotic use at six hospitals and 200+ outpatient clinics. The graduates of our PGY2 program will be prepared to practice as clinical specialists in infectious diseases, develop/manage antimicrobial stewardship programs, and precept residents and students in infectious diseases pharmacotherapy.
Our two PGY2 ID pharmacy residents will progress through a series of customized rotations and longitudinal learning experiences during the 12-month period. Rotations are completed as a mix of focused blocks and longitudinal experiences. These blocks include an orientation block, eight required rotation blocks, and two elective blocks.
