The pharmacy residency in critical care is a 12-month, full-time, post-graduate year two (PGY2) training program. This specialized residency program is designed to provide an experience leading to the development of expert knowledge, skills and clinical leadership in the practice of critical care pharmacy. Building upon the skills gained from a PGY-1 program, the resident will be awarded with opportunities to gain critical care experience through a variety of clinical rotations and interactions with a multidisciplinary healthcare team for optimization of the care of critically ill patients. Upon completion of the program the resident is expected to demonstrate competency in the area of critical care pharmacy practice, written and oral communication, and critical care research.
The program emphasizes clinical practice with required rotations in medical ICU, surgical ICU, neurosciences ICU, and cardiothoracic ICU (6 weeks each). Elective rotations include burn ICU, emergency medicine, infectious diseases, coronary care unit, neonatal ICU, pediatric ICU, nutrition support, and solid organ transplant (heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas).
This residency participates in the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Residency Matching Program and is fully accredited by ASHP.
Applicants must have graduated from an accredited Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program and completed an ASHP-accredited pharmacy practice residency (or equivalent experience) prior to beginning this critical care residency. Applicants must also be eligible for licensure in New York State.
