Dr. N. Jim Rhodes, PharmD, MSc, BCPS AQ-Infectious Diseases completed his Doctor of Pharmacy degree at the University of Florida and a Master of Science in Clinical Investigations at Northwestern University. He also completed four years of post-graduate training including a pharmacy practice residency, a specialty infectious diseases residency, and a two-year fellowship in Infectious Diseases Pharmacotherapy focusing on clinical outcomes and pharmacometrics. Dr. Rhodes is currently an Assistant Professor at Midwestern University where he serves as a clinical and didactic instructor in infectious diseases therapeutics and clinical pharmacokinetics. In 2018, he joined the Midwestern University Pharmacometrics Center of Excellence. He is engaged in clinical-translational research at Midwestern University and Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he practices clinically in acute-care infectious diseases and antimicrobial stewardship. He actively participates in infectious diseases organizations, publication peer-reviews, extramural funding reviews, and continuing education content for clinical pharmacy specialties.
