The St. Joseph’s/Candler (SJ/C) Critical Care PGY2 Residency Program is designed according to ASHP standards to build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency training to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. The SJ/C PGY2 Critical Care residency program provides a 12-month critical care pharmacy practice experience. There is one open position for this residency. The residency program will strive to provide an optimal environment for residency learning through continued preceptor and professional development, pharmacotherapy management, frequent two-way feedback between the resident and preceptors/administrators, and a commitment to the individual goals and interests of each resident. The residency is structured to offer the resident a range of experiences in critical care and emergency medicine while meeting the primary goals and objectives set forth by ASHP. It is also affiliated with The University of Georgia (UGA) College of Pharmacy which provides a graduate certificate program for the PGY2 residents. Required learning experiences include medical/surgical ICU, neurological ICU, emergency medicine, and coronary care unit. Elective opportunities are available in academia, nephrology, and special care nursery; physician specialty rotations and other electives will be considered based on the resident's interests.
