The WakeMed Health & Hospitals PGY2 Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Residency Program provides residents with the experience and knowledge necessary to become competent practitioners in infectious diseases pharmacy practice and antimicrobial stewardship.
PGY2 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.
The resident will excel in the care of patients with infectious diseases in any setting. Excellence will be achieved by completing the following objectives:
WakeMed Health & Hospitals Antimicrobial Stewardship Program (ASP) was established in 2009.
