This job will expand our already existing team. With the addition of a second pharmacist to the team, dedicated time will be split between Clinical ID and Antimicrobial Stewardship. Clinical ID time will be spent supporting and rounding with Infectious Diseases consult team(s). UAMS has 3 ID consult teams: general consults, transplant ID, and orthopedic infectious diseases.
