The PGY2 Critical Care Residency at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) and Regional One Health (ROH) in Memphis, TN was started in 1987 by Drs. Rex Brown and Brad Boucher. The program has trained over 70 critical care residents, and the current RPD is Dr. Chris Wood. The core services are trauma ICU (TICU) and a nutrition support service (NSS) that is focused on ICU patients. Required rotations are: seven months divided between TICU and NSS during the year (non-consecutive), three months of electives, one month of hospital orientation/introduction to TICU/NSS (July), and one month of research/TICU/NSS cross coverage (Dec). Elective options at ROH and other UTHSC partner hospitals in the medical center include medical ICU, burn ICU, neurocritical care, emergency medicine, cardiology, nephrology, and solid organ transplant. Residents are required to participate in a publication-quality research project. They will also have a variety of teaching opportunities in the UT Pharm.D. program and at ROH. Residents can optionally enroll in the UT Teaching and Learning Program. The residency accepts three residents per year. Contact Eddie Van Matre, Pharm.D. (Edward.firstname.lastname@example.org).
