The PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency at Nebraska Medicine offers a unique and stimulating learning environment which provides comprehensive clinical training in critical care pharmacy practice. The goal of the residency program is to develop clinical practitioners who specialize in the interdisciplinary care of critically ill patients and have an interest in education and research. The resident will be integrally involved with health-care professionals throughout the continuum of patient care, including patient education, assessment, and therapeutic recommendations. Working with experienced pharmacy clinicians, the PGY2 pharmacy resident also will gain experience serving as a preceptor for pharmacy students and PGY1 pharmacy residents. Residents will provide compassionate, evidence-based, progressive medical care in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
