Critical care residency mission statement
The mission of the critical care residency program is to train competent, confident and independent practitioners of critical care pharmacy practice in a pediatric health-system setting. Through education, multidisciplinary teamwork and research the resident will obtain skills necessary to provide quality pharmaceutical care and function as a clinical pharmacist/specialist in pediatric critical care.
PGY2 program 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 specialized areas of practice. 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 or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.
The practice model integrates distribution and clinical activities at the patient care level, and is supported by centralized drug distribution, support functions and management systems.
Residents contribute to various clinical activities, including collection of data for Medication Utilization Evaluations (MUEs), in-services to the staff during their clinical rotations and inpatient medication teaching to patients. Critical care residents regularly participate in the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee and Resuscitation Oversight Committee. In addition to clinical services, the residents serve as preceptors to pharmacy students post-graduate year one residents completing their critical care clinical clerkships and rotations throughout the year.
