Pharmacy at NYP

Specialty Residency: PGY-2

The pharmacy specialty residency programs at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital are designed to enhance experience within a selected clinical specialty. The knowledge and skills gained by working closely with leading researchers and clinicians will enable the resident to excel at the forefront of pharmacy practice and medicine.

We currently offer three ASHP-accredited PGY-2 pharmacy residency positions tailored to the needs and interests of each resident through our extensive clinical practice programs including Critical Care, Infectious Diseases, and Solid Organ Transplantation.

Rotations in Detail

The pharmacy residency in critical care is a 12-month, full-time, post-graduate year two (PGY-2) training program. This specialized residency program is designed to provide an experience leading to the development of expert knowledge, skills and clinical leadership in the practice of critical care pharmacy. Building upon the skills gained from a PGY-1 program, the resident will be awarded with opportunities to gain critical care experience through a variety of clinical rotations and interactions with a multidisciplinary healthcare team for optimization of the care of critically ill patients. Upon completion of the program the resident is expected to demonstrate competency in the area of critical care pharmacy practice, written and oral communication, and critical care research.
