The PGY2 Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Residency at UofL Health offers advanced training that builds upon an acute care PGY1 to focus specifically on the field of infectious diseases pharmacotherapy and management. The program is structured according to ASHP’s Residency Program Design & Conduct and will be tailored to the resident’s professional goals and interests.
The PGY2 ID Pharmacy Residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in an advanced or specialized practice. PGY2 infectious diseases 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 that improves medication therapy. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 infectious diseases pharmacy residency should possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacists and/or faculty positions and position them to be eligible for the attainment of board certification in the practice area.
