PGY2 Critical Care
Residents completing a PGY2 specialty residency at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital will 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. The residents will be provided 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. Graduates will be prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification.
The 12-month PGY2 critical care program emphasizes clinical practice with required rotations in medical ICU, surgical ICU, neurosciences ICU, and cardiothoracic/cardiac ICU (5 weeks each). Elective rotations include burn ICU, emergency medicine, infectious diseases, neonatal ICU, pediatric ICU, nutrition support, and solid organ transplant (heart, lung, liver) or any of the required rotations may be repeated.
This residency participates in the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Residency Matching Program and is fully accredited by ASHP.
