PGY2 Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Residency Program
Montefiore Medical Center is currently offering a PGY-2 pharmacy residency program in infectious diseases (ID). The program builds upon the Doctor of Pharmacy education and continues the PGY1 pharmacy residency experience to develop expertise and clinical aptitude in the field of infectious disease.
The Montefiore Medical Center PGY2 Infectious Diseases (ID) Pharmacy Residency Program is a one year program intended to build on the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. The resident who successfully completes an accredited PGY2 ID pharmacy residency is prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification in infectious diseases (BCIDP).
The PGY2 ID pharmacy residency program is a 12-month structured training program with the focus on infectious diseases. The program consists of core and elective learning experiences delivered longitudinally or four-week blocks throughout the residency. The PGY2 resident will develop understanding and skills in infectious diseases pharmacotherapy through participation in the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program and clinical activities with the Infectious Diseases consult services.
The PGY2 resident will also engage in research and performance improvement projects. He or she will gain time management skills in adhering to a research timeline, creating an appropriate study design and methodology, completing data collection and analysis, submitting/presenting abstract at national or regional conferences, and publishing research findings.
In addition, the resident will build on his or her practice management and leadership skills through administrative functions. The resident will also have multiple opportunities to precept and teach pharmacy residents and/or students partake in educational activities.
Here are a few highlights of the program:
