The PGY2 Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Residency Program at UAB Hospital is designed to prepare graduates to be pharmacy specialists in the care of patients with infectious diseases. Residents will also develop the knowledge and skills necessary to be integral members of an antimicrobial stewardship program and to contribute to public health efforts to reduce the spread of antimicrobial resistance and vaccine-preventable diseases. In addition to qualifying the resident for clinical pharmacy specialist positions in infectious diseases or faculty areas, graduates will be prepared to sit for the Board Certification Exam in Infectious Diseases Pharmacy upon successful completion of the program.
