Charleston Area Medical Center’s PGY2 Pharmacy Residencies in Critical Care and Geriatrics are ASHP accredited programs.
Critical Care The PGY2 Critical Care residency is designed to provide advanced training and education, building upon PGY1 residency experiences, in critical care medicine and surgery populations. The second-year resident will refine the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to provide advanced pharmacy care to critically ill patients, in a dynamic, collaborative environment. The resident will also gain experience in teaching and research related to critical care medicine. Upon completion of the PGY2 in Critical Care, the resident will have achieved a level of expertise in the critical care environment to function as a clinical specialist within a multidisciplinary team, and to become a leader within the profession.
Geriatrics The Charleston Area Medical Center/West Virginia University Pharmacy Residency in Geriatric Pharmacy consists of 12 months training and experience in the provision of pharmacotherapy to older adults.
The purpose of our program is to prepare pharmacists to become competent clinicians or clinical faculty who serve the needs of older adults in a variety of health care settings with particular strengths in ambulatory and acute care. Another of the program’s strengths is the integrated involvement of both the West Virginia University School of Pharmacy and the School of Medicine - Charleston Campus which provide additional support and opportunities in practice, teaching, and scholarship.
