Program Description: The PGY2 Infectious Diseases (ID) Pharmacy Residency at UW Medicine is a ASHP-accredited PGY2 program, which provides twelve months of training designed to develop and refine the skills necessary to make and monitor therapeutic interventions for the safe and efficacious use of drug therapy in patients with infectious diseases.
The rotations range from traditional inpatient ID consult services to outpatient hepatitis/HIV clinics and emergency medicine rotation focused on antimicrobial stewardship. The diverse patient populations at UW hospitals and multitude of seasoned clinicians sets this program apart from others. There are rotations in specialty areas such as solid organ transplant ID and oncology/bone marrow transplant ID. Experiences in pediatric infectious diseases may be available as well at nearby Seattle Children’s Hospital. To keep the resident well-rounded, they also spend time at Valley Medical Center or UWMC-NW campus to navigate the nuances and challenges that a smaller, community hospital offers.
The resident will develop a research project designed to improve pharmaceutical care services for patients with infectious diseases. The resident actively participates in teaching students, residents, and pharmacists during their residency. The resident works closely with a multidisciplinary team while on clinical rotations. The unique experience at UW Medicine is our tele-stewardship (UWTASP) program which spans the WWAMI region and beyond. Weekly tele-stewardship sessions include relevant ID didactic lectures and discussion of cases submitted by the TASP participants. UW TASP participants includes pharmacists and infection preventionists from critical access and rural hospitals. The resident is actively participating in UWTASP by providing lectures and coaching participants.
