This residency is an ASHP-accredited specialty program designed to train pharmacists to care for the critical care patient. Training will be focused in both general and specific intensive care units such as: the medical intensive care unit (ICU), neurosciences ICU, cardiovascular/cardiothoracic ICU, surgical/trauma ICU, and medical-surgical ICU, as well as offering a mandatory transplant and emergency medicine experience. The program offers a wide variety of critical care rotations allowing sufficient flexibility to adapt to the individual needs of the resident, while ensuring all of the ASHP standards for critical care residency training are met. Elective rotations in antimicrobial stewardship, infectious diseases consult, heart/lung transplant, and in various pediatric ICUs are also available. The strength of the program lies in both the practice model at the Medical University of South Carolina and preceptors with their experienced backgrounds, preparing the resident to excel in the various positions ranging from clinical specialists in critical care, to critical care faculty members, to general critical care pharmacist practitioners.
