Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Residency

The University of Kansas Health System provides residents with the skills and knowledge to practice in antimicrobial stewardship and as an infectious diseases clinical specialist. This residency program is designed to transition postgraduate year 1 (PGY1) residency graduates from generalist practice to specialized practice focused on the care of patients with complex infectious diseases in numerous settings. Antimicrobial stewardship is a secondary focus of the residency, with an emphasis on population management strategies throughout a large health system.

Residency program purpose statement

The postgraduate year 2 (PGY2) infectious diseases residency program is designed to provide residents with robust experience in the clinical management of patients with infectious diseases as well as population level management through antimicrobial stewardship. We work closely with the infectious diseases physicians and fellows on 8 ID consult services that manage a diverse patient population, including patients with cystic fibrosis, burns, hematologic and oncologic malignancies, and solid organ transplants. The PGY2 resident will have the opportunity to experience dedicated time in the clinical microbiology laboratory and actively participate in educational opportunities offered through the infectious diseases fellowship program, including journal club presentations and clinical disease state discussions. Longitudinal responsibilities include participation in the antimicrobial stewardship committee, teaching, precepting, quality improvement and research. Completion of this program will prepare the resident for a career in clinical practice or antimicrobial stewardship program administration.
