Applicants considered for an appointment will be invited to visit BIDMC for a personal interview with the program director and selected faculty. An interview can be arranged only when your application file is complete.
Completed application packets will be reviewed by select members of the Residency Advisory Committee (RAC) to determine candidates that most closely match the BIDMC program goals and opportunities.
Selected candidates will be invited to an onsite interview with members of the Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Practice Council, the Antimicrobial Stewardship Medical Director and Attendings as well as Pharmacy Management. The interview will include a short (15 minute) patient vignette presentation to the group.
Following the interview process, residency candidates will be ranked based upon the collaborative input with regard the interviews and qualifications of the candidate.
A rank list will be submitted to the Resident Matching Program.
Residents matched to the BIDMC Residency program will receive an acceptance letter acknowledging the match and delineating the general terms and conditions of the residency. Acknowledgment in writing by the resident will constitute acceptance of the match and agreement to fulfill the duties of the residency position for the upcoming year.
Participation in the BIDMC PGY2 Infectious Diseases Residency Program is contingent on securing and maintaining a license without restriction in the State of Massachusetts. It is the expectation that the resident will complete these licensure requirements within 90 days of the commencement of the program.
The resident will provide the Residency Program Director confirmation that:
He/she has already taken or is scheduled to take the NAPLEX and the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE), or
He/she will take the MPJE upon successful transfer of NAPLEX scores from another state, or
He/she has already has a valid MA pharmacy license.
Upon notification of successful completion of the NAPLEX and/or MPJE the resident will provide documentation of licensure to the Residency Program Director.
Failure to attain licensure is grounds for dismissal from the residency program. Residents should contact the Residency Program Director should any issue arise with licensure.
