Baylor University Medical Center (BUMC) has over 120 adult Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds, divided into Medical, Surgical-Trauma, Neurosurgical, Cardiothoracic and Bone Marrow Transplant ICUs. BUMC provides care for a variety of critically ill and emergency department patients and is designated as a Level 1 Trauma Center, Comprehensive Stroke Center and ECMO Center of Excellence.
Our PGY2 Critical Care Residents function as integral members of the critical care team in order to acquire practical clinical experience. Residents will develop the knowledge and skills to provide patient-specific and evidence-based pharmacotherapy while functioning as independent practitioners. In addition, valuable leadership and research skills are developed through participation in code blue response, critical care-related multidisciplinary committees, teaching and completion of a research project. Graduates from the residency program will be well prepared to pursue positions as a clinical specialist, clinical faculty, and board certification.
BUMC’s PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency has been ASHP-accredited since 2007. We currently accept one resident each year.
