Indiana University (IU) Health offers a one-year PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant (SOT) Residency. The IU Health PGY2 SOT residency is designed to train future transplant clinical pharmacists across both abdominal and cardiothoracic solid organ types in the inpatient and outpatient setting. Additionally, the residency will provide training in patients requiring mechanical circulatory support (MCS). Optional rotation experiences in pediatric solid organ transplant are available.
During the PGY2 SOT residency year, the resident will acquire knowledge and skills in managing immunosuppression, infectious prophylaxis regimens, and post-transplant complications in solid organ transplant recipients. Graduates will exit with the ability to work collaboratively with other transplant clinical providers to design and implement both organ-specific and patient-specific care plans that optimize immunosuppression while minimizing opportunistic infections, hematologic/oncologic complications, and adverse side effects. Residency graduates are equipped to participate as integral members of interdisciplinary teams caring for solid organ transplant patients, assuming responsibility for the patient’s medication-related care.
Longitudinal experiences will engage the resident in necessary transplant pharmacy administration activities, educational opportunities in practice and didactic settings, and participation in quality improvement initiatives. The resident will function as an effective member of the transplant multidisciplinary team and acquire the necessary practice skills of a qualified solid organ transplant clinical pharmacist. Additionally, the resident may gain experience in professional organization participation, medication appeals, regulatory standards, and transplant administration fundamentals
