The purpose of the PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy residency is to develop and refine clinical, leadership, research management, quality assurance, and teaching skills within the practice of critical care. Upon completion of the PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy residency, graduates should be well-prepared to enter clinical practice as a critical care specialist, associate or affiliate clinical faculty member, or to pursue critical care fellowship training.
Training focuses on a full range of disease states, disorders, and procedures, along with the literature behind the medication management of such conditions. Rotations are designed to ensure experience is gained with the highest acuity patients in each sub-specialty area. Clinical knowledge needed to obtain board certification within the practice specialty is provided. Graduates are able to conduct research independently in the critical care environment and should be confident educators in the multidisciplinary and pharmacy training environment.
