Morton Plant Hospital’s Post-Graduate Year Two (PGY2) Critical Care Pharmacy Residency program is a 12-month ASHP accredited program that provides highly specialized training for residents in all aspects of critical care. The critical care pharmacy residency is based at the Morton Plant Hospital campus, with opportunities to gain experience throughout the BayCare system. By meeting community health care needs for over a century, Morton Plant Hospital has earned a reputation for being one of the most effective, well-managed hospitals in America, with three intensive care units and 59 critical care beds. Residents will have opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care that improves medication therapy. The PGY2 Critical Care program is designed to ensure residents possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacist and/or faculty positions and eligibility for attainment ofboard certification in critical care.
The PGY2 Critical Care program is designed to build on general PGY1 pharmacist competencies and provide advanced experiences to further develop expertise in critical care medicine. Residents will gain critical care experience through participation in:
Rapid sequence intubations
Additionally, residents will conduct prospective medication order review, answer drug information questions, and participate in multiple committees affecting critical care medicine. They will be required to complete a research project and will have opportunities to assist in precepting pharmacy students as well as PGY1 residents. By the end of the program, the resident will have been immersed within the critical care team and be trained to handle a wide variety of disease states, as well as prioritize patient care in a dynamic clinical environment.
