    The UPMC Pharmacy Administration and Antimicrobial Stewardship (PAAS) Fellowship Program is comprised of practical, real-world experiences in antimicrobial stewardship and leadership to develop skills to prepare pharmacists to assume leadership positions in antimicrobial stewardship pharmacy practice. This position is Monday - Friday 7 am - 3 pm with additional on-call responsibilities overnight (these on-call responsibilities are taken from home). Staffing is every 4th weekend Saturday/Sunday either AM or PM shift (6:30-3 pm or 1:30 - 10 pm).

    The program is designed to provide a clinical and operational foundation of hospital antimicrobial stewardship care through the first year. This year focuses on applying core leadership principles and antimicrobial stewardship skills as integrated experiences.

The fellow will select a designated area of interest in antimicrobial stewardship and will focus on mastering the necessary skills. This area of interest will be selected based on the identified area of focus and will support the needs of the antimicrobial stewardship team.  Specific requirements will differ slightly depending on the area of concentration. This allows fellows to experience the role of a team leader and accountability for performance within their selected project of interest.
