PGY2 Critical Care Residency Program

Mission, Vision, Values

This program provides residents with the experience and training necessary to become a critical care clinical pharmacy specialist and/or clinical faculty. The resident will be responsible for providing care in our medical ICU, surgical ICU, cardiac care unit, and emergency department while undergoing longitudinal experiences in cardiac arrest response team, academia, and pharmacy administration.

Elective rotations are available in infectious disease, ambulance ride-along, trauma, psychiatry and other areas. The resident will be involved in teaching students from Fairleigh Dickinson University School of Pharmacy on rotation and in the classroom.

There is one PGY2 position available at CMC. We participate in the Pharmacy Online Residency Centralized Application Service and will be participating in the ASHP Residency Matching Service for all classes.

Purpose

PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in advanced or specialized practice in Critical Care. 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 that improves medication therapy.

Residents who successfully complete the Community Medical Center Critical Care PGY2 pharmacy residency will possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacist and/or faculty positions and position them to be eligible for attainment of board certification in Critical Care.
