A Wide Variety of Opportunities
PGY2 Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Residency
Program Type: ASHP accredited PGY2 Residency
ASHP Match Number: 655255
PGY2 (Post-Graduate Year Two) pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 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 or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.
Individuals completing the PGY2 Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Residency at HSHS St. John’s Hospital and SIUE will be highly qualified clinical specialists and preceptors or faculty members in the area of infectious diseases pharmacotherapy/ antimicrobial stewardship at an acute care hospital. They will also be qualified to sit for the exam to become a Board-Certified Infectious Diseases Pharmacist (BCIDP) offered by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS).
