Transplant 

The purpose of this specialty residency is to prepare the resident to develop expertise in the provision of pharmaceutical care to solid organ transplant (e.g., heart, liver, lung, pancreas, kidney) recipients within inpatient and outpatient interdisciplinary care environments. Some experience with stem cell or pediatric transplant patients may be available and is site specific. The resident may be engaged in the conduct and support of clinical and outcomes-related research. Pharmacists completing this program will possess the competencies necessary to pursue transplant-focused clinical practice or academic positions.
