Monica V. Mahoney, PharmD, BCPS-AQ ID is the clinical pharmacy coordinator of infectious diseases at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, the official Hospital of the Boston Red Sox. In this role, she is responsible for adult antimicrobial stewardship and infectious diseases consultation on the immunocompetent and compromised services, precepting PGY1 and PGY2 pharmacy residents, and education for ID fellows.
Monica received her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from MCPHS University-Boston in 2006 (when it was called the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences), completed her PGY1 residency at Tufts Medical Center in 2007 (when it was called Tufts-New England Medical Center), and stayed on as the first ever PGY2 in ID also at Tufts (2008). Apparently, organizations like to change their names to disguise their affiliations with Monica. J In additional to training residents, she has lectured at MCPHS University, Northeastern University, and Harvard Medical School.
Monica is a Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist with additional qualifications in Infectious Diseases (which, incidentally is ALSO going away after the next recertification cycle expires, further contributing to her name-change complex). She does not know how to say no, and is therefore actively involved in the Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists (SIDP), American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP), American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP), and the Massachusetts Society of Health-System Pharmacists (MSHP), among others. Pointing out grammatical errors and forcing residents to make their posters “pretty” are her specialties. She thinks she’s witty and encourages you to find her on Twitter @mmPharmD
