PGY2 Critical Care Residency - TMC
The PGY2 Critical Care Residency at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center is an ASHP-accredited, one-year postgraduate training program that begins on July 1st annually. The program consists of rotations throughout a variety of critical care specialty areas designed to develop advanced skills and competencies necessary to be competent and confident practitioners of pharmaceutical care in the critical care specialty.
Upon completion of this residency, pharmacists will be able to skillfully educate other pharmacy and critical care practitioners. They will be able to optimize therapeutic outcomes by functioning as an integral member of a critical care practice.
The facility is designated a Level I Trauma Center and provides extended care through the Life Flight Medical Air Transport System. Comprehensive critical care services are available to patients, including: surgical/trauma, cardiovascular, neurosciences, medical intensive care, transplant critical care, burn, pediatric and neonatal intensive care.
PGY2 Critical Care Residents will be exposed to a broad range of experiences and activities intended to build the skills necessary to practice as a clinical pharmacist in the critical care setting. Residents are required to complete an orientation month, along with 8 month-long rotations. The remaining months will consist of a research project month and 2 month-long elective rotations.
Residents will conduct a longitudinal research project throughout their residency year that includes presenting the results at a regional residency conference and preparing a written manuscript. Presentation skills will be enhanced by giving an ACPE-accredited seminar presentation along with case presentations throughout the year. Residents will also gain experience with teaching and precepting through the completion of a Teaching Certificate program and co-precepting pharmacy students on clinical rotations.
