The MUSC Transplant Residency (PGY-2) is a specialty residency designed to train pharmacists to care for an organ transplant recipient. Training will be focused in immunology, infectious disease and critical care, with opportunities to care for organ transplant recipients in the inpatient and outpatient settings. The rotation schedule is designed to give the resident exposure to many different facets of transplantation (heart, lung, kidney, pancreas, liver, and pediatric) which will ensure they develop a complete understanding of how to care for a transplant recipient’s complex regimen of immunosuppression as well as the related disease states commonly seen with these patients. The rotation schedule for the transplant resident will include one to three months of core rotations in pediatrics and adult abdominal transplantation and heart/lung transplantation, covering both inpatient and outpatient medicine and surgery services. Elective rotations are available in ambulatory bone marrow transplant, transplant quality and compliance, cardiothoracic surgery, internal medicine, infectious diseases, and other critical care areas. All pharmacy residents at MUSC are required to complete two projects: a MUE and a service/research project. Residents present one ACPE-accredited seminar per year and give a didactic lecture in the transplant/immunology elective at the College of Pharmacy. There will be additional research and publication opportunities available for residents to participate in, including potential submission and presentation of research to the American/World Transplant Congress or the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation annual meeting. Because transplantation is highly protocol driven, participation in the development, initiation, monitoring and outcomes of transplant specific protocols is required. All residents participate in the clinical transplant on-call service, teaching seminar series, journal club, MUEs, service projects, and have a staffing requirement.
