Cardiology, Inpatient Care, Solid Organ Transplant
This PGY2 pharmacy residency program builds on the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY1 residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in cardiology. The program provides 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 this PGY2 program are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification.
Integrated pharmacy practitioners at Tufts Medical Center are responsible for dedicated clinical practices, drug distribution, teaching, and research in a variety of cardiac care settings. The Cardiovascular Center at Tufts Medical Center offers nationally renowned programs in advanced heart failure and heart transplantation, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, cardiac arrhythmias, interventional cardiology, cardio-oncology, and cardiac surgery. Dedicated pharmacists provide care to patients following cardiac surgery, in the cardiomyopathy unit, in the coronary care unit, on a general cardiology floor, and in various cardiology clinics.
