PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.

Charleston Area Medical Center’s PGY2 Pharmacy Residency in Critical Care is an ASHP accredited program. Upon completion of the PGY2 in Critical Care, the resident will have achieved a level of expertise in the critical care environment to function as a clinical specialist within a multidisciplinary team, and to become a leader in the profession.
