PGY2 Infectious Diseases Residency
The infectious diseases residency is a one-year ASHP-accredited specialty residency that offers in-depth experience in a variety of areas including antimicrobial stewardship, infectious diseases consults, microbiology lab, bone marrow transplant, HIV clinic, and surgical critical care rotations. Other areas for infectious diseases electives include pediatric infectious diseases, solid organ transplant, medicine/pulmonary ICU, and immunology lab. The primary emphasis of the program is to develop clinicians with expertise in the area of infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance, and antimicrobial stewardship. Residents completing the program are expected to demonstrate competency in the areas of contemporary pharmacy practice, written and oral communication, and infectious diseases research.
The hospital’s antimicrobial stewardship program is run jointly by an infectious diseases pharmacist and physician. Its mission is to ensure safe, appropriate, and cost-effective antimicrobial use for patients at the University of Kentucky. There are currently two infectious diseases consult teams, one focusing on general infectious disease issues and HIV, and the other focusing on osteomyelitis and skin/soft tissue infections.
The infectious diseases resident participates in clinical or bench top research activities, and the results of a research project are expected to be presented at a national meeting and in a professional manuscript. The resident also has educational responsibilities including precepting Doctor of Pharmacy students, leading case discussions, giving didactic lectures for the College of Pharmacy, and providing inservices for other healthcare providers.
