The Emergency Medicine Residency (PGY-2) is a one-year training program designed to develop an expert-level practitioner with the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to excel as an emergency medicine clinical specialist.
The program offers a variety of opportunities that allow the resident to develop the clinical skills and aptitude necessary to manage complex emergency medicine issues and optimize patient outcomes. Required experiences consist of a core series of emergency medicine rotations including trauma and observation emergency medicine, adult critical care rotations in the medical and neurosciences intensive care units a pediatric intensive care unit rotation, and a concentrated toxicology rotation. Several elective rotations are offered to further enrich pharmacotherapy knowledge and application, such as experiences in transplant medicine and infectious diseases as well as additional emergency medicine experiences.
In addition to completing a research project and drug use evaluation, the resident will further refine skills through clinical staffing, presentations at pharmacy education conferences and other venues, and participation in institutional and enterprise emergency medicine committees. Clinical teaching opportunities are also available with pharmacy students, residents, and physicians. The residency program fosters the development of an independent practitioner with the ability to thrive in a variety of emergency medicine practice settings.
