Postgraduate Year Two Critical Care Pharmacy Residency

NYU Langone Health offers a one-year Critical Care Pharmacy Residency program with an intensive individualized inpatient experience. This postgraduate year two (PGY-2) program provides residents with the training necessary to develop clinical expertise in critical care pharmacotherapy. Core rotations in a variety of intensive care environments allow you to advance your knowledge in the different aspects of critical care pharmacotherapy and develop clinical skills.

Longitudinal involvement with NYU Langone’s Intensive Care Oversight Group and completion of a research project are also required. As a resident, you have a broad range of clinical and research opportunities and the flexibility to integrate your professional goals.
