Comprehensive Training In Infectious Diseases
This 12-month, ASHP-accredited, PGY2 infectious diseases residency program at Barnes-Jewish Hospital is designed to provide the resident an opportunity to advance his/her/their clinical knowledge and judgement beyond that of a PGY1 general practice resident in the area of infectious diseases and antimicrobial stewardship. The residency program is designed to help equip the resident with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to be an adept, independent, clinical pharmacy specialist practitioner/educator in the area of infectious diseases and antimicrobial stewardship. The program aims to accomplish this goal through comprehensive core training, collaboration with other healthcare providers, appropriately close mentorship with earned independence, and exposure to collaborative and independent teaching opportunities. Upon completion of the residency, the graduating resident will be prepared to provide comprehensive infectious diseases pharmaceutical care and be able to successfully serve healthcare organizations as a resource for information on antimicrobials, for decision-making affecting the care of patients with infections, for leadership in formulary decision-making for antimicrobials, and for education and training of others, including patients, the public, trainees, and healthcare professionals.
This PGY2 residency program participates in the ASHP residency match program.
