The PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency Program welcomed its first resident in 2017. The program is currently in candidate status with the American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP) and went through an accreditation survey in 2018. The program expects full accreditation by 2019. The Residency Program Director is Caroline Ko, PharmD, BCPS, BCCCP and the Residency Coordinator is Gina Ko, PharmD, BCCCP.
The goal of the program is to develop residents into advanced critical care pharmacy practitioners. Residents will become fully integrated members of the interdisciplinary critical care team, learn to manage complex pharmaceutical regimens in a fast-paced environment, complete quality improvement projects, and gain experience in inpatient pharmacy leadership, including committee work and precepting activities.
