NYU Langone Health offers a one-year postgraduate year 2 (PGY-2) Solid Organ Transplant Pharmacy Residency program with an intensive and individualized experience in the inpatient and ambulatory setting. You receive the training necessary to develop clinical expertise in solid organ transplant pharmacotherapy.

Core rotations in kidney and pancreas, liver, heart/ventricular assist device (VAD), and lung transplant allow you to advance your knowledge in the pharmacotherapy of different organs and to refine your clinical skills. Additional rotations include transplant infectious diseases, bone marrow transplant, surgical/transplant intensive care unit (ICU), human leukocyte antigen (HLA)/immunology lab, and experiences in the ambulatory setting.

Longitudinal involvement with organ-specific listing committees and completion of a research project are also required. As a resident, you have a broad range of clinical and research opportunities and the flexibility to integrate your professional goals. Our program equips you with the knowledge and experience to be a competent solid organ transplant pharmacy practitioner.
