The University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) is a 678-bed tertiary academic medical center on the Anschutz Medical Campus. The Transplant Center at UCHealth has been a leader in solid organ transplant since performing the first liver transplant in 1963. The care team provides multi-disciplinary care for kidney, pancreas, liver, lung, and heart transplant recipients. Additionally, the Transplant Center participates in several prospective, clinical trials on an annual basis.
This PGY2 residency is designed to develop competencies necessary for specialized practice in solid organ transplant pharmacotherapy. This PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant Pharmacy Residency provides the resident advanced clinical training in both the inpatient and outpatient settings during all phases of transplant. PGY2 residents will be involved in teaching programs at the school of pharmacy, including didactic and clerkship teaching of PharmD students and PGY1 residents, as well as medical residents and fellows. A research project is required for successful completion of the residency. Residents will be involved with selection of specific research projects according to clinical interests. Residents should expect to gain experience in medical writing, statistical analysis and publishing. Upon completion of the residency, graduates will be prepared to practice as a solid organ transplant clinical pharmacy specialist in both the inpatient and outpatient settings or as academic faculty.
Interested applicants meeting the above criteria should electronically submit a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, academic transcripts, and three letters of recommendation through ASHP’s Pharmacy Online Residency Centralized Application Service (PhORCAS).
