The Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant Pharmacy Residency Program provides an intellectually stimulating environment where the resident will care for transplant recipients while acquiring knowledge and skills that will prepare them to become a transplant pharmacotherapy specialist. The transplant pharmacy resident is viewed as an essential member of the multidisciplinary care team where they provide medication education and drug information to various health care professionals, patients and family members as part of their daily activities. Opportunities are available for precepting pharmacy students and PGY1 residents and leading lectures at the various colleges of pharmacy in the area. The addition of an optional teaching certificate program at Northeastern University School of Pharmacy allows the resident to refine their skills as a pharmacy educator who can progress into an academic role in the area of transplant pharmacotherapy. A flipped research model provides the transplant resident the opportunity to complete a research project that can be submitted for presentation at a national transplant meeting in addition to developing their own research idea during the second half of the year. Through this process the resident will learn foundational skills that can be applied as a clinical researcher in a transplant pharmacy practice setting. Finally, the resident will participate in numerous MGH Transplant Center committees and activities, where they will be exposed to the regulatory and accreditation standards by which a transplant program must abide.
The transplant program at Massachusetts General Hospital is the largest in New England performing more than 300 transplants in 2018. The transplant pharmacy resident will gain exposure to adult and pediatric transplantation and will care for heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas, islet and vascular composite allograft transplant recipients.
