Comprehensive Training In Infectious Diseases
This ASHP-accredited specialty residency in infectious diseases (ID) is a 12-month, PGY2 program. The residents will work primarily with clinical pharmacists specializing in infectious diseases. Each resident's schedule will be tailored to meet individual needs. The program begins with a mandatory clinical microbiology experience. Residents will then complete rotations on two general inpatient ID services and a transplant ID service. Residents also complete a longitudinal rotation in the HIV/ID Outpatient Clinic and participate in the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program. Elective opportunities in other practice areas (e.g., Solid Organ Transplant, Stem Cell Transplant, Hematology/Medical Oncology, Pediatric ID, ICU) are available based on specific interests. Completion of a research project and involvement in teaching at the St. Louis College of Pharmacy is expected. This PGY2 residency participates in the ASHP residency matching program.
