The ASHP-Accredited PGY2 Critical Care residency is designed to facilitate transition from generalist practice to specialized practice in managing critically ill patients and prepare the resident to sit for the BCCCP exam upon completion. Rotation experiences focus on developing resident capability to deal with diseases and disorders that are relevant to the critically ill with emphasis placed on multi--organ system failure and challenges related to patients requiring life-sustaining therapy.
Residents are expected to be integral members of the multidisciplinary care team. Program graduates will be experienced in critical care research and have the ability to teach other health professionals in academic settings. They will also acquire leadership skills to facilitate practice in critical care settings.
Requirements for graduation include completion of the following: all core rotations, residency project and submission of a paper of publishable quality, and supervising a student medication use evaluation project.
