The Department of Pharmacy Services at the University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers is recruiting applicants for a one-year ASHP accredited PGY2 Residency in Infectious Diseases.
The ID PGY2 residency at the University of Michigan provides a balanced training program focused on patient care, clinical research and teaching. The program offers the opportunity to receive mentoring from 3 adult ID pharmacists, 2 pediatric ID pharmacists and 2 tenure track faculty ID pharmacists.
The goal of the program is to develop a well-rounded clinical ID pharmacist with experience in treating a variety of patient populations.
