Cleveland Clinic is comprised of a 1,400-bed academic medical center and 17 additional hospitals, including 5 in Southeast Florida. In total, there are nearly 6,000 inpatient beds and over 1,400 pharmacy employees, more than 300 physician practices, 20 ambulatory pharmacies, significant inpatient and outpatient clinical services and a pharmacy budget exceeding $1 billion.
The Critical Care Residency (PGY-2) is a one-year training program designed to develop an expert-level practitioner with the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to thrive as a critical care clinical specialist, clinical faculty member, or to pursue fellowship training in critical care.
The program offers a variety of opportunities that allow the resident to develop the clinical skills necessary for complex intensive care issues and to optimize patient care outcomes. Required rotations include the medical, surgical, cardiac, cardiovascular surgery and neurosciences intensive care units. Elective opportunities in the heart failure, trauma/ burn and pediatric intensive care units, emergency department, infectious diseases consult service, and bone marrow and solid organ transplantation enable residents to integrate their accumulated knowledge and skills to provide comprehensive pharmaceutical care for critically ill patients.
Additional elective opportunities include clinical teaching and outcomes research. The residency fosters development of an independent practitioner with the ability to thrive in a variety of practice settings. In addition to completing a research project and drug use evaluation, the resident will hone their skills through clinical staffing and presenting in both pharmacy education conference and pharmacy critical care journal club settings. Clinical and didactic teaching opportunities are available.

Cleveland Clinic Health-System Residency sites agree that no person at these sites will solicit, accept, or use any ranking-related information from any residency applicant.
NOTE: 1. Residency applicants must currently be authorized to work in the United States. Cleveland Clinic Pharmacy does not sponsor applicants for work Visas. 2. Appointments of applicants to residency positions may be contingent upon the applicants satisfying certain eligibility requirements [e.g., graduating from accredited college of pharmacy, obtaining pharmacist license in Ohio (for Ohio sites) or Florida (for Florida sites) within 90 days of start date, and successful completion of a pre-employment physical and drug screen, including testing for cotinine]. 3. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate OPT (Optional Practical Training) Visas for the Cleveland Clinic Pharmacy Residency Program as the program extends beyond 12 months. 4. The Cleveland Clinic Pharmacy Residency Program does not meet the qualifications of an OPT STEM employer because Cleveland Clinic is not enrolled in E-Verify.
