PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.

The PGY2 Infectious Diseases Residency Program at South Texas Veterans Health Care System is designed to develop the clinical skills and knowledge base to function independently as an Infectious Diseases clinician in a variety of areas (General ID, HIV, OPAT, Antibiotic Stewardship).

In addition, the experiences are designed to develop the administrative and project management skills needed in these types of positions.

Required rotations include Microbiology, ID Consults (3), Antimicrobial Stewardship (3), Inpatient HIV Medicine, Outpatient Immunosuppression/ID clinic.

Electives include, but are not limited to, BMT, Solid Organ Transplant, VHA Pharmacy Benefits Management and Antimicrobial Stewardship Taskforce, Internal Medicine and Critical Care (MICU or SICU).
