The PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant Pharmacy Residency Program at UAB Hospital is a one-year program designed to provide extensive experience in the adult abdominal and cardiothoracic patient populations in both acute- and ambulatory-based environments that will build upon skills developed as a clinical pharmacist during a PGY1 residency. Its focus is the development of the skills and confidence necessary to autonomously provide advanced pharmacotherapy management to patients in solid organ transplant settings and to qualify the resident for clinical pharmacy specialist positions in transplantation as well as to prepare the graduate to attain board certification in the specialized practice area (when board certification exists).
The applicant must possess a PharmD degree and have completed an ASHP-accredited PGY1 pharmacy residency. All applications must be submitted through PhORCAS (Pharmacy Online Residency Centralized Application System) by January 1. The required components of the application include a letter of intent, three references, a photograph of the applicant, curriculum vitae, and a pharmacy school transcript. An on-site interview is required.
