The primary goal of this program is to develop residents into independent transplant pharmacists and confident pharmacy leaders who possess in-depth therapeutic knowledge coupled with professional maturity.
Solid organ transplant practice at UChicago Medicine incorporates experiences in kidney, pancreas, islet cell, liver, heart, and lung transplantation. Residents provide care for transplant recipients and living organ donors throughout the entire transplant process including pre-transplant pharmacy evaluations, immediate post-transplant care, management of chronic illness post-transplant, and ambulatory clinic-based care. The transplant resident will complete clinical research training, assume responsibility for select transplant clinical trials, and complete at least one investigator-initiated project. The transplant resident will have the opportunity to teach in both classroom and clinical settings, with the option of completing a teaching certificate program.
