PGY-2 Solid Organ Transplant Residency (Main Campus)
Location: Cleveland , Ohio
Solid Organ Transplant Pharmacy
The PGY-2 Solid Organ Transplant residency is a one-year training program that builds on Doctor of Pharmacy education and PGY-1 pharmacy residency training to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in solid organ transplantation.
The Solid Organ Transplant residency 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 an accredited PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions.
Required rotations consist of kidney, liver, heart, and lung transplant, transplant ambulatory care, and immunocompromised infectious diseases. The resident can choose from a number of elective rotations to build and enhance competencies. Additional experiences for the resident include a research project, drug use evaluation, and participation in pharmacy education conferences.
