Residency Program Purpose Statement
The purpose of the Providence PGY2 Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Residency Program is to provide opportunities and experiences that develop the resident’s skills, knowledge, and critical thinking abilities needed to be an infectious diseases specialist.
Residents will spend the first part of the year gaining experience in antimicrobial stewardship and microbiology. Residents will then transition to the infectious diseases consult service and participate advanced electives such as pediatric infectious diseases.
