PGY2 Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Residency Program
The UTMB Health PGY2 Infectious Diseases pharmacy residency program is designed to prepare PGY1 pharmacy residency graduates for a career focused on the care of patients with infectious diseases. Residents will have the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in infectious diseases and clinical microbiology. The PGY2 resident will work closely with the Adult Infectious Diseases Consult Service and other clinical services.
The resident will also be a member of the health system’s Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee and have the opportunity to learn, establish, and perform evidence-based antimicrobial stewardship strategies to optimize antibiotic use throughout the institution.
The resident will expand his/her teaching skills by interacting with students from four area colleges of pharmacy. Residency projects are presented as posters at the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear Clinical Meeting.
The PGY2 Infectious Diseases pharmacy residency program is accredited by ASHP. The program code is 74127.
