The Medical University of South Carolina PGY2 Infectious Diseases Residency Program is designed to develop accountability, practice patterns, habits, and expert knowledge, skills, attitudes, and abilities in the respective advanced area of pharmacy practice. The residency builds upon the broad-based competencies achieved in a PGY1 residency, deepening the resident's ability to provide care in the most complex of cases or in the support of care through practice leadership. The infectious diseases pharmacy residency at MUSC is a specialized residency consisting of 12 months of intense training, research and experience in areas including, but not limited to, clinical infectious diseases and antimicrobial stewardship. The program allows for sufficient flexibility to adapt to the interests and needs of the individual resident, yet provides the basic foundation for quality clinical practice in infectious diseases. The resident will have opportunities to function independently as a practitioner by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and transforming both into improved medication therapy for patients. A resident who successfully completes the PGY2 Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Residency Program should be prepared to enter into a clinical practice position in a hospital-based environment or a combination of academia and practice affiliated with a College of Pharmacy. They should also possess the competencies that enable attainment of board certification in the practice area (i.e., Board Certified Infectious Diseases Pharmacist).
