PGY2 Critical Care Residency
CaroMont Regional Medical Center is a 435 bed non-for-profit community
hospital that features 24 hour clinical pharmacy services. Clinical pharmacists
participate in patient care through dosing and monitoring of approved
pharmacotherapy protocols. In addition, pharmacists participate in multidisciplinary
patient care teams and committees throughout the hospital.
Throughout the PGY2 year, residents engage in a variety of clinical experiences
tailored to their specific interests and goals. Required rotations include
Medical ICU, Surgical ICU/Trauma, Cardiovascular ICU, Infectious Disease,
and Emergency Medicine. Longitudinal experiences include ICU staffing,
Code Blue response, PGY1 resident precepting, and antimicrobial stewardship.
Additionally, the resident will complete a longitudinal residency research
project worthy of publication.
The PGY2 Critical Care residency program provide post-graduate year two

areas of critical care medicine and infectious disease. Residents function
as independent practitioners as part of the multi-disciplinary teams in
critical care and infectious disease, while overseen by pharmacist and

evidence-based drug therapy management who is capable of optimizing care
