The PGY2 Emergency Medicine Residency at MUSC is uniquely designed to develop skilled clinicians that practice independently and excel in clinical service, teaching, and research. Six core learning experiences in Emergency Medicine, combined with five electives built around the resident’s prior experiences, along with multiple longitudinal experiences (e.g., toxicology, pre-hospital emergency care) provide for a well-rounded learning experience. Elective rotations include Internal Medicine, Medical Intensive Care, Medical-Surgical Intensive Care, Surgical Critical Care-Trauma, Surgical Critical Care-Neurosurgery, Pediatric Intensive Care, Infectious Diseases, and Psychiatry.
Residents are provided dedicated research time and are expected to present nationally and publish their endeavors. Scholarly activities may focus on clinical, practice-based, or outcomes research. Residents will present an ACPE-accredited seminar and participate in Emergency Medicine physician and nursing education. Precepting and teaching students in advance pharmacy practice experiences and didactic settings is offered, as is a longitudinal teaching certificate program. Additionally, there are ample opportunities for project involvement benefiting pharmacy services in the Emergency Department and the medication-use process. All residents are expected to participate in the clinical on-call service.
Applicants must possess a PharmD degree from an ACPE-accredited college or school of pharmacy and must be eligible for licensure as a pharmacist in the state of South Carolina. Candidates for the PGY-2 residency must have completed a PGY1 residency or have equivalent experience.
