PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency
Texas Health Dallas
  • About the Program

    The PGY2 Critical Care residency is a 12 month program designed to develop well rounded clinical practitioners in Critical Care Pharmacotherapy. One residency position will be offered.

    Pharmacists completing this residency program will be exposed to a variety of settings intended to provide a solid knowledge base of critical care. Clinical pharmacy specialists with PGY2 critical care training provide support for our institution daily. The residency preceptor provides guidance to the resident and ensures that the goals set forth by the resident and the program are met. The preceptors also provide the resident with frequent evaluation of their progress.

    PGY2 pharmacy residency programs 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.
