The post-graduate year two (PGY-2) Critical Care Residency at Emory University Hospital (EUH) is an ASHP-accredited, one-year specialty program designed to expose you to diverse populations of critically ill patients.
Through patient data collection and analysis, you will develop the knowledge and skills needed to provide patient-specific and evidence-based pharmacotherapy. You will function as an independent practitioner and integral member of multidisciplinary care teams. In addition, you will develop valuable leadership and research skills by participating in a critical care related interdisciplinary committee and completing a clinical research project.
Our residents develop a strong critical care clinical knowledge base, commitment to teaching and appreciation for clinical research. The critical care specialty residency program at EUH utilizes the collective assets of Emory Hospitals and the Emory Center for Critical Care in the following areas:
Clinical practice: Residents become familiar with disease states, pharmacology, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of critically ill patients. Residents learn to incorporate their clinical knowledge into day-to-day practice and function independently as a member of the health care team.
Teaching: Residents teach PGY-1 pharmacy residents, pharmacy students, physicians, nurses and other members of the health care team.
Research: Residents learn to develop and conduct a clinical research project and obtain Institutional Research Board (IRB) approval.
Practice management: Residents utilize practice management skills to promote rational and safe use of medications; residents master personal development skills for life-long learning and professional growth.
