The PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency at UW Medicine is an ASHP-accredited post graduate program, which provides twelve months of training designed to develop and refine the skills necessary to make and monitor therapeutic interventions for the safe and efficacious use of drug therapy in critically ill patients. The primary practice sites include University of Washington Medical Center Montlake Campus (UWMC-ML) and Harborview Medical Center (HMC). The program provides residents with opportunities in a wide variety of critical care medicine and surgery areas. Residents work independently as an integral member of the healthcare team under the supervision of preceptors with extensive experience in their respective practice areas. The aim of the program is to provide the specific skills and competencies to the resident that are needed to assume advanced practitioner and leadership roles in critical care pharmacy practice. Upon completion of the program, residents are equipped to obtain a position in the majority of critical care areas as a specialty clinical pharmacist, clinical faculty, or continuation of postgraduate training in a fellowship program.
