Critical Care Residency Special Features: Boston Medical Center's PGY-2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency was the first in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to gain ASHP accreditation in 2004. During that time, critical care pharmacy services have expanded to include dedicated specialists in medical, trauma, cardiac, and surgery critical care. Additionally, emergency department has grown to be the only ED in the Commonwealth to provide 24/7 decentralized pharmacy services. The critical care resident will participate in one week of ICU evening staffing every 8 weeks and staff every 3rd weekend alternating between the ED satellite and ICU decentralized coverage. Longitudinal projects focus on clinical research or quality improvement based on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement model.
