Postgraduate Year Two Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Residency

NYU Langone Health offers a one-year postgraduate year 2 (PGY-2) Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Residency program with an intensive and individualized experience in the inpatient setting. The resident will receive the training necessary to develop clinical expertise in infectious diseases pharmacotherapy and antimicrobial stewardship.

The core rotations in adult infectious diseases, antimicrobial stewardship, and clinical microbiology laboratory allow the resident to advance their knowledge of different aspects of infectious diseases and develop clinical skills. Additional rotations can include transplant infectious diseases, hematology–oncology infectious diseases, pediatric infectious diseases consult, and adult outpatient infectious diseases clinic.

Longitudinal involvement with the Antimicrobial Subcommittee of the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee and completion of a research project are required. As a resident in our program, you have a broad range of clinical and research opportunities and the flexibility to integrate your professional goals.
