Pharmacy Residency Program

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 residents the opportunity for professional growth within the specialty 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 physician preceptors.

CRMC does not currently sponsor candidates for H-1B visa status to work as pharmacy residents.

The purpose of the PGY2 Critical Care (CC) Pharmacy Residency is to prepare a board certification eligible CC pharmacy clinician as a provider of evidence-based drug therapy management who is capable of optimizing care for critically ill and infectious disease patients and establishing antimicrobial stewardship programs, while advancing Critical Care and Infectious Disease pharmacy practice
