The UMass Memorial Medical Center ASHP-accredited PGY2 residency is designed to prepare pharmacists for a career in a critical care practice setting including medical, surgical, trauma, neuroscience, or cardiac intensive care. Graduates of our program are prepared to become clinical specialists at large academic medical centers, faculty members at colleges of pharmacy, and candidates for critical care fellowships.
UMMMC has 7 adult ICUs, a pediatric ICU, and a neonatal ICU providing a diverse range of critical care learning experiences. We are the only level-1 trauma center for Central Massachusetts. We are also a Cardiovascular Center of Excellence, employ the 24-hour VISICU telemedicine service, and we have a state-of-the-art Emergency Medicine and Toxicology Department. Our multidisciplinary Critical Care Operations Committee has been recognized as a successful model of how to translate evidence-based medicine to bedside practice.
The resident will participate in an in-house on-call program. Our residents are trained to provide drug information and pharmacy driven clinical services, including participation in the management of medical emergencies, anticoagulation service, and aminoglycoside service during these on-call shifts.
We also provide numerous teaching opportunities through our strong relationships with several colleges of pharmacy. We also have teaching and learning opportunities through the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine and Graduate School of Nursing.
