Temple PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant Pharmacy Residency Program

History

Deep Majmundar and Adam Diamond, PharmD, BCPS

Temple University Hospital (TUH) is a member of the Temple University Health System (TUHS), which is composed of 5 hospitals. TUH is a 714-bed institution and is the primary hospital of TUHS located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is also the chief clinical training site for the Temple University School of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, as well as other healthcare professional disciplines.

TUH performed the first heart transplant in the Philadelphia region back in 1984. Currently, it is the leader in lung transplantation, with 145 lung transplant surgeries, the most in the United States in 2019. In addition, TUH has a robust abdominal organ transplant program (kidney, liver, and pancreas) and heart transplant program, with averages of 70 and 25 surgeries, respectively. TUH has established a referral basis with area hospitals to expand our transplant programs. Visit our Transplant Program for more information and history at TUH.

TUH’s first pharmacy residency program was founded in 1969, and there are currently 5 PGY1 pharmacy residents who gain clinical experience at both the TUH-Main and TUH-Jeanes campuses. The PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant pharmacy resident will have opportunities to gain clinical experience at both these campuses as well. This program will further enhance their clinical skills and knowledge through participation on the multidisciplinary transplant team. PGY2 SOT pharmacy resident involvement will range from providing clinical services in the inpatient and outpatient settings, developing protocols and policies, educating pharmacy students and residents, and performing outcomes research.

Mission

Our mission is to provide safe, comprehensive, high quality, patient specific, pharmaceutical care in an environment of professionalism, respect, and integrity.

Statement of Purpose

PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.

Why Temple?

The PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant Pharmacy Resident will have the opportunity to work in an academic tertiary care hospital providing them with exposure to all types of solid organ transplant populations. The complexity and diversity of the patient population will challenge the resident and expand their clinical and critical thinking skills in providing comprehensive care to solid organ transplant recipients. The strong relationship between transplant pharmacy and transplant surgery/medicine is integral in providing an educational and diverse experience to the resident while also providing the opportunity to establish collegial relationships with providers and other transplant staff. Transplant pharmacists at TUH are heavily involved in providing direct patient care to solid organ transplant recipients in both the inpatient and ambulatory settings, participating in outcomes research, protocol, policy, and guideline development, and educating pharmacy and transplant staff, students, and residents.

Opportunity

There is 1 PGY2 Solid Organ Transplant Pharmacy Residency position available each year.
