The purpose of the PGY2 Critical Care program is to develop a well-rounded independent critical care practitioner able to provide high-level clinical services in a variety of ICU settings. The resident will develop skills in managing drug therapy for patients with multiple disease states in the critical care setting, educating students, residents, and other healthcare professionals, and conducting clinical research. The resident will also gain experience in therapeutic policy development in the critical care environment. At the residency completion, graduates exit equipped to be fully integrated members of the interdisciplinary critical care team, able to make complex medication recommendations in the acute environment for the critically ill patient population. In addition, graduates excel in teaching other healthcare professionals and exercising leadership for critical care practice in the health system.
