Pharmacy Residency PGY2
The PGY2 infectious disease pharmacy residency at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center has applied for candidate status from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) and is anticipated for full approval upon completion of the current residents. The 12-month program is designed to provide the resident with the opportunity to develop his/her clinical skills in preparation for a comprehensive practice as an Infectious Diseases Clinical Pharmacy Specialist. Residents completing the program will be competent and confident in both the management of adult patients with infectious diseases and the implementation of antimicrobial stewardship.
The PGY2 infectious disease pharmacy residency is heavily weighted in direct patient care. The program consists of core learning experiences and additional requirements but also incorporates tailored instruction based on each individual resident’s interest(s) and career goal.
The resident is expected to make a commitment to satisfactorily complete all requirements of the residency, as planned in advance and communicated with the resident upon acceptance into the program. This commitment includes but is not limited to the following: active participation in direct patient care, presentations, precepting and mentoring of pharmacy students, attendance at required meetings and programs, and the availability and willingness to participate in any function of the Division of Pharmacy on a 24-hour basis.
