TMC’s critical care pharmacy residency program is a 12-month program designed to prepare its graduates to assume positions in adult critical care, emergency medicine/trauma services in an urban teaching facility, similar to that of TMC. TMC is an academic teaching hospital providing the unique opportunity to not only precept pharmacy students, but also educate learners from other disciplines. In addition, the resident will have the opportunity to teach on an academic level at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy. Required learning experiences include critical care medicine, trauma surgery, emergency medicine and infectious disease. The resident will also complete BLS/ACLS certification if they are not currently certified in addition to actively participating in the Advanced Trauma Life-Support course offered at TMC. Elective learning experience opportunities include cardiology, PICU/NICU, neurosurgical ICU, solid organ transplant and participation in the teaching certificate program offered through the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy.
Missouri license (or eligible), letter of interest, college of pharmacy transcripts, Curriculum Vitae and written case presentation (PowerPoint presentation is the preferred format for the case presentation and will need to be uploaded as a PDF file for PhORCAS). The case presentation will be presented during the on-site interview. Lastly, 3 references to complete the standard PhORCAS form. We ask that the reference writers complete the four questions that are optional in PhORCAS and include the same quantity and quality of information that they would normally include in a traditional letter of recommendation in their responses to these questions.
