The mission of the PGY-2 Critical Care Residency program at the Grady Health System is to teach, train and equip residents to become expert practitioners in a general critical care environment. Residents who complete the PGY-2 Critical Care residency at Grady should be able to secure a clinical position in the arena of critical care. Residents participating in the Critical Care Specialty residency at Grady Health System have a myriad of learning experiences at their disposal, as trauma and critical care have been identified as one of our seven “Centers of Excellence”. The university-based environment coupled with exposure to the diverse populations of critically ill patients, and strong clinical pharmacy presence provides the resident with ample opportunities to develop the clinical knowledge base and skills necessary for a successful practice as an expert practitioner.
Applicants to the critical care specialty residency must have completed, or be in the process of completing, a pharmacy practice residency. The decision to continue in a second year of residency training demonstrates the resident’s commitment to professional growth and development. That commitment is taken seriously by Grady preceptors, who are full-time clinicians with an expertise in critical care, and are dedicated to assisting the resident through an intensive year of focused training.
