Travis Dick, PharmD, BCPS, MBA currently maintains a clinical pharmacy practice within Abdominal Transplant.
Travis received a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry with a minor in communication from the University of New Mexico followed by his doctor of pharmacy degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He then went to Duke University Hospital where he completed both a PGY1 pharmacy practice residency and a PGY2 residency in solid organ transplantation. He has since earned a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Utah. He maintains board certification in pharmacotherapy and has presented both nationally and internationally on transplant-related topics. His primary responsibility at Intermountain Medical Center is to serve as a solid organ transplant clinical pharmacy specialist where his particular clinical interests include immunosuppression, humoral rejection, and transplant infectious diseases.
Dr. Dick has a passion for research and teaching. His research has led to numerous scientific abstract publications and presentations. He has published full manuscripts in Transplantation Proceedings and the Journal of Forensic Sciences and serves as a reviewer for a number of peer-reviewed journals. He serves as the chair of the Pharmacy Resident Research Committee at Intermountain Medical Center and mentors pharmacy residents in the research process.
Practicum Description And GoalsThe abdominal transplant program at Intermountain Medical Center began in 1983 when the first kidney transplant was performed at LDS Hospital. During this four to six week rotation the patient population consists of those that receive kidney, pancreas, and/or liver transplants. We also follow patients with liver dysfunction prior to their transplants. Patients are followed longitudinally; therefore all medical sub-specialties are encountered in the intensive care unit, on the inpatient floor, and in transplant clinic. This interdisciplinary service includes transplant surgeons, transplant hepatologists, transplant nephrologists, mid-levels, nurses, transplant coordinators, dieticians, social workers, and pharmacists.
Patients become involved with the pharmacist through several means. In the hospital, all patients are evaluated by a pharmacist daily. The pharmacist also completes detailed discharge teaching for all patients and facilitates filling the patient’s pill box after their transplant. The same patients are also evaluated in follow-up appointments to help reinforce the content taught in the hospital. The pharmacist may also see patients in the clinic and teaches groups of patients about medications prior to their transplant. Each patient in the liver clinic is evaluated by a pharmacist prior to the physician’s assessment.
In addition to providing education for patients, the solid organ transplant clinical pharmacist regularly provides education to the transplant team and hospital nurses, participates at the weekly transplant multidisciplinary selection conference and pathology rounds, and collaborates with the team for protocol development and adherence.
This practicum experience is intended to provide exposure to the management of kidney, liver, and pancreas transplants and hepatology patients. The resident will learn to integrate into the multidisciplinary transplant team. The practicum will familiarize the PGY1 and PGY2 resident to the roles a transplant pharmacist practices within transplant medicine, including clinical specialist, researcher, protocol development, and policy/procedure development.
The pharmacy resident is responsible for identifying and resolving pharmacy related issues for all patients on the abdominal transplant service. The resident will also be responsible for being the primary preceptor for a student. This rotation is teaching rotation and provides many opportunities for the PGY1 teaching certificate.

Tyson Brooks, PharmD, BCPS, practices pharmacy in the Cardiothoracic ICU at Intermountain Medical Center.
He completed his pharmacy practice residency at Methodist University Hospital in Memphis, TN, before coming to the University of Utah Hospital for his second residency in internal medicine. He has published original research articles regarding beta-blocker use in asthma patients and the treatment of hypertensive emergencies. His current interests include the use of clotting factors to control post-operative bleeding and reverse bleeding associated with anticoagulant agents.
Practicum Description And GoalsDuring the 4-6 six week rotation the learner will be exposed to a wide variety of post-surgical patients (e.g. CABG, valve repair/replacements, thoracotomies, vascular bypass, patients undergoing thrombolysis via tPA, patients on ECMO). The pupil will learn appropriate pharmacotherapy based on evidence based medicine for patients in this critical setting and serve as a resource for surgeons, intensivists, nurses and mid-levels in regards to pharmacotherapy.
Specific goals of the rotation will be discussed with the individual learners; however, the main objective is to make the learner a self-motivated, knowledgeable, and a valuable asset to a multidisciplinary team, regardless of the practice setting. This can be achieved to a degree by accomplishing the goals and by the learner having a willing attitude.
