PGY2 Specialized Emergency Medicine Pharmacy Residency

The PGY2 residency in emergency medicine pharmacy focuses on the provision of clinical pharmacy services to the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) Emergency Department (ED) in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The program is sponsored by the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy.

RWJUH is the Level 1 trauma center for Central New Jersey, seeing approximately 90,000 patients annually. The resident's focus will be on the direct care of ED patients in treatment areas such as emergent care, urgent care, non‐urgent care, pediatrics and psychiatry. Additional focus in toxicology is possible through elective rotation with t rotation as well as monthly toxicologist consultants’ conference at the New York City Poison Control Center.

Other rotation electives including MICU, SICU, and more. An academic appointment with the school of pharmacy is provided and the resident is provided the opportunity to participate in a teaching certificate program at Rutgers University, attend toxicology-related didactic lectures, and function as a co‐preceptor for Rutgers University pharmacy students.

Graduates of the program are empowered to treat and appropriately triage the most complex chronic and acute illnesses presented by ED patients, including those with multiple disease states and serious complications. They also acquire the experience necessary to exercise leadership for emergency medicine pharmacy practice in the healthcare system. Graduates of the emergency medicine pharmacy residency are experienced in teaching other health professionals and those in training to be health professionals.
