Antimicrobial Stewardship

The Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) service is an informational resource for healthcare providers that coordinates antimicrobial-focused education and administrative initiatives. Residents review treatment regimens to optimize patients' therapy and examine specific ID topics discovered during global assessment of antimicrobial therapy. Time is divided between global treatment plan assessment, individualized learning and discussion of ID topics, and work on specific ID initiatives.

Critical Care I

During the Critical Care I rotation, residents attend daily multi-disciplinary rounds with the ICU team. Along with the preceptor, residents will be responsible for all aspects of medication therapy management for up to 24 medical and surgical ICU patients. The residents' active participation during codes, knowledge of critical care pharmacotherapy, and serving as a drug information resource are emphasized.
