MountainView Hospital’s PGY-2 Infectious Diseases Residency Program develops the clinical pharmacist specializing in infectious diseases by building upon the knowledge acquired from a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree and completion of a PGY-1 pharmacy residency program. This is accomplished through core and elective clinical experiences and a longitudinal curriculum that spans the entire year. Upon completion of the program, residents will have the knowledge and skills necessary to lead antimicrobial stewardship programs, pursue faculty positions, and obtain board certification in infectious diseases.
