Transplant Residency Program Information

General Information

We accept one (1) full-time PGY 2 Tranplant Resident each year for the 12 month residency. A major research project must be completed and presented during the residency year.


The goal of the transplant residency program is to provide opportunities in direct patient care, administration, education, and research that lead to the development of an independent and competent solid organ transplant pharmacy specialist.

Program Description

The residency is a twelve month program with a focus on solid organ transplant patient centered medication therapy management. The majority of the resident’s time will be spent on various tranplant teams, working collaboratively with a medical team and other healthcare providers. The pharmacy resident will serve as a pharmacy resource within the team.


Funding is available for educational meetings as well as membership in national, state, and local professional organizations. Residents receive an annual stipend and are eligible for health insurance, holidays and educational travel.
Vacation: 19 total days paid time off (PTO)
