Pharmacists completing a Henry Ford Macomb Hospital (HFMH) PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency experience will be competent practitioners able to provide direct patient care in specialized advanced practice areas for critically ill patients. These individuals will further develop and enhance their personal and professional skills as they seek positions as critical care pharmacists.
PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete a PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.
