The PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant Residency at Nebraska Medicine offers a unique and stimulating learning environment which provides comprehensive clinical training in solid organ transplant pharmacy practice. A resident completing this program will be a competent practitioner in the care of transplant patients and will be qualified to function as a highly skilled transplant practitioner within a health system or in academia.
The resident will be integrally involved with health-care professionals throughout the continuum of patient care, including patient education, assessment and therapeutic recommendations. Working with experienced pharmacy clinicians, the resident also will gain experience serving as a preceptor for pharmacy students and PGY1 pharmacy residents. Residents will provide compassionate, evidence-based, progressive medical care. The program allows tailored instruction for the individual based on interest and past experiences.
Residents will enhance their teaching and presentation skills in a variety of settings. A clinical research project is to be completed and presented at the Midwest Pharmacy Residents Conference. Additional teaching experiences are integrated throughout the year using seminars, patient cases, journal clubs and in-service education for health-care professionals. The resident will also present one formal Pharmacy Grand Rounds presentation and one didactic lecture at the affiliated College of Pharmacy.
