The critical care residency is a one-year specialty residency that allows the resident to practice in a university-affiliated tertiary care, academic teaching hospital with 690 beds and five adult intensive care units on the main Parnassus campus. UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco, part of UCSF Health, are recognized by US News and World Report as the sixth best hospital in the nation. We are a primary stroke center, have a 24-hr cardiac catheterization lab, and had over 43,000 hospital admission and 1 million outpatient visits in 2015. The program is affiliated with the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, a Level 1 trauma center, where the resident will have the opportunity for offsite rotation experiences. Additional off-site rotation experiences are available based on resident interest.
The focus of the critical care pharmacy residency is to develop specialty expertise in critical care clinical practice in a variety of intensive care settings, where the resident will serve as a key member of the interdisciplinary care team. Teaching is also an integral component of the program as UCSF Medical Center is closely affiliated with the UCSF School of Pharmacy (SOP). The resident will have the opportunity to teach Doctor of Pharmacy students in SOP courses, including a critical care pharmacotherapy elective, and to precept Doctor of Pharmacy students and residents on critical care rotations and in high fidelity critical care simulation labs. The resident will also have the option to complete teaching and research certificate programs.
