Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, one of the nation's top pediatric hospitals as ranked by U.S. News and World Report, welcomes pharmacists to join our post graduate year two (PGY2) program in infectious disease (ID).
As a PGY2 resident, you’ll further your professional competence, expand your clinical knowledge and develop a philosophy of pharmacy practice in a facility that’s committed to providing an exceptional health care experience to its patients. As a quaternary care referral center, with 397 licensed beds, and more than 13,000 inpatient admissions each year, we offer a challenging diverse caseload to our residents.
The PGY2 ID resident will have the opportunity to work with infectious diseases pharmacy and physician clinicians and the Antimicrobial Stewardship program, which has been designated as both an Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) Antimicrobial Stewardship Center of Excellence and on the California Department of Public Health’s (CDPH) ASP Honor Roll. Our PGY2 Infectious Diseases (ID) resident will develop and advance their skills in designing patient-centered antimicrobial regimens, coordinating transitions of care, performing antimicrobial stewardship program (ASP) activities such as prospective audit with feedback, and providing effective presentations and educational programing.
In addition to clinical services, residents gain operational and management experience throughout the year and participate in teaching activities with students and post graduate year one (PGY1) pharmacy residents.
Our philosophy of residency training is to offer practical experiences in diverse, multidisciplinary environments in pediatrics. Our approach in the provision of pharmaceutical care is to provide comprehensive, patient-oriented services.
The practice model integrates distribution and clinical activities at the patient care level, and is supported by centralized drug distribution, support functions and management systems.
Residents contribute to various clinical activities, including collection of data for Medication Utilization Evaluations (MUEs), in-services to the staff during their clinical rotations and inpatient medication teaching to patients. PGY2 residents regularly participate in the Pharmacy and Therapeutic Committee and have opportunities to work with a number of other institutional committees.
