Our PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency at Prisma Health Richland Hospital is designed to transition PGY1 residency graduates from a general practitioner to one in a specialized practice that meets the needs of critically ill patients. PGY2 residency graduates exit our program equipped to be fully integrated members of the interdisciplinary critical care team, able to make complex medication and nutrition support recommendations in this fast-paced environment.
Training focuses on developing the resident with the capabilities to understand a wide 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.
Graduates of the critical care residency are experienced in short-term research in the critical care environment and excel in their ability to teach other health professionals and those in training to be health professionals. They also acquire the experience necessary to exercise leadership for critical care practice in the health system.
