The Infectious Diseases pharmacy resident will participate as a member of the adult and pediatric infectious diseases teams at UW Health.
The primary focus of the residency is to become a competent infectious diseases clinician. This is accomplished by rounding with adult and pediatric infectious diseases consult services and supporting an antimicrobial stewardship service that serves four affiliated hospitals.
The UW Health Department of Pharmacy works collaboratively with infectious diseases physicians and fellows, School of Pharmacy faculty, the Clinical Laboratory Department and Infection Control Division to optimize management of complex infectious diseases.
Our department leads innovative approaches to pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic target-based therapeutics in hospitalized patients. With four hospitals, seven intensive care units, a federally recognized comprehensive cancer center, a world-leading transplant center, an outpatient HIV clinic and a home infusion center, a broad patient population is cared for during this specialty residency program.
