The purpose of this PGY2 pharmacy residency program is to 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.
This specialty program is designed to provide advanced clinical training, leadership opportunities and extensive research experience within the critical care setting. Residents will work with a diverse and dedicated critical care preceptor team, who have many years of experience training PGY1 and PGY2 residents.
Froedtert Hospital is a 711-bed academic medical center with 107 dedicated ICU beds.
Research projects and teaching activities are tailored to meet the needs/interests of the resident. Grant submissions are encouraged.
