Pharmacy Residency Program

PGY2 Emergency Medicine Residency

The emergency department (ED) at CRMC is a 50 bed, Level 3 trauma center. With greater than 100,000 visits annually, CRMC is the third busiest ED in the state. Clinical pharmacists are present in the ED 21 hours per day and serve as an integral part of the multidisciplinary team. The ED utilizes a bedside bar-coded drug administration system. CRMC is accredited by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care as a Chest Pain Center and is a recognized Primary Stroke Center.

Throughout the PGY2 year, residents engage in a variety of clinical experiences tailored to their specific interests and goals. Required rotations include adult emergency medicine I / II, pediatric emergency medicine, trauma, pre-hospital care, toxicology, critical care and precepting / teaching. Longitudinal rotations include practice management, code response, staffing and editorial responsibility for the EM physician newsletter. Additionally, residents participate in co-precepting students, provide continuing education programs and complete a longitudinal residency research project worthy of publication.

The residency program strives to inspire and promote professional growth within the EM specialty through focusing the majority of rotations in the emergency department and allowing for independent practice with preceptor oversight.

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

The purpose of the PGY2 Emergency Medicine (EM) Pharmacy Residency is to prepare a board certification eligible EM pharmacy clinician as a provider of evidence-based drug therapy management who is capable of establishing and advancing EM pharmacy practice.
