The PGY2 Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Residency at UAB Hospital is a one-year program designed to prepare graduates to be pharmacy specialists in the care of patients with infectious diseases. Its focus is the development of the knowledge and skills necessary to be integral members of an antimicrobial stewardship program and to contribute to public health efforts to reduce the spread of antimicrobial resistance and
vaccine-preventable diseases. In addition to qualifying the resident for clinical pharmacy specialist positions in infectious diseases or faculty areas, graduates will be prepared to sit for the Board Certification Exam in Infectious Diseases Pharmacy upon successful completion of the program.
The PGY2 Infectious Diseases Residency Program at UAB Hospital includes a combination of required and elective learning opportunities (rotations) throughout the year that give the resident a wide variety of experiences in infectious diseases and antimicrobial stewardship.

Why did you choose UAB Medicine?
After developing an interest in immunocompromised patients with infectious diseases during my PGY1 year, I knew I wanted to train at an institution that would offer me a diverse experience within this unique patient population. While developing my PGY1 continuing education presentation on novel antifungals, I quickly realized that UAB Medicine was a leader in this area of practice. After learning more about the program at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting, I knew that training at UAB would enable me to become a well-rounded infectious diseases pharmacist prepared to practice in any area of the field. The opportunity to train under supportive and welcoming preceptors who are truly passionate about their work has been a great experience so far!
Our goal is to develop a highly skilled practitioner who will be successful in any setting they choose to practice after graduation.
