PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in advanced or specialized practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care that improves medication therapy. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency should possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacist and/or faculty positions and position them to be eligible for attainment of board certification in that practice area (when board certification for the practice area exists).
This residency provides a well-rounded experience in both the medical and surgical critical care populations. A number of core and elective rotations strengthen the resident’s critical care fundamentals as well as providing flexibility to meet the individual's needs. The program is designed to transition PGY1 residency graduates from general pharmacy practice to specialized practice that meets the needs of critically ill patients by developing the resident's clinical expertise in critical care. It also provides additional opportunities for teaching, research, quality improvement, and professional writing.
Training focuses on developing resident capability to deal with a range of diseases and disorders that occur in the critically ill. Special emphasis is placed on the complexities of multiple organ system failure and the difficulties imposed on care when patients require life-sustaining equipment.
At residency completion, PGY-2 graduates exit equipped to be fully integrated members of the interdisciplinary critical care team, able to make complex medication recommendations in the acute environment of the critically ill patient population. Graduates of the critical care residency are also experienced in short-term research in the critical care environment and excel in their ability to teach other health care professionals. They also acquire the experience necessary to exercise leadership for critical care practice in the health system.
The goal of the program is to develop independent pharmacy practitioners to become integral members of the critical care multidisciplinary team.
