Infectious Diseases PGY-2 Residency
This program is primarily focused on the resident becoming 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 a broad population spanning four affiliated 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. The UW Health Department of Pharmacy works collaboratively with infectious disease 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.
