Advanced Infectious Diseases

Advanced Infectious Diseases is an elective, one-month learning experience.

The pharmacy resident is responsible for evaluating and recommending optimal antimicrobial treatment plans for inpatients. In addition, he or she is responsible for monitoring patients for drug therapy outcomes, providing drug information to medical staff, patients and families, and participating in infectious diseases consult rounds.

In this advanced rotation, the resident's primary responsibility will be managing patients on the infectious diseases consultation service. They will collaborate with the physicians to provide optimal antimicrobial regimens. A component of audit and feedback from antimicrobial stewardship may be added based on the resident's ability and interests.
