The purpose of the OU College of Pharmacy PGY2 HIV Pharmacotherapy Residency is to build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in advanced or specialized practice.
 
The PGY2 residency in HIV Pharmacotherapy is designed to prepare the postdoctoral resident for a career in pharmacy practice in either a health care or academic institution or for continued fellowship training. This one year position is intended for individuals with a primary interest in the management of HIV infection and infectious diseases. The resident will be appointed the academic rank of Clinical Instructor with the University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy (OUCOP). The resident will function as a clinical pharmacist in the outpatient Infectious Diseases Institute, seeing primarily HIV and HIV/HCV co-infected patients. Patients are scheduled for appointments with a clinical pharmacist for new patient education visits and established patient pharmacotherapy visits specifically addressing administration and adherence issues pertaining to antiretroviral and/or hepatitis C therapy.  

Experience with the inpatient management of opportunistic infections and general infectious diseases will be gained by working with the Infectious Diseases Consult Service. In addition, the resident will participate in ongoing research activities and be involved with Doctor of Pharmacy student education. Participation in a teaching certificate program is required.
