The PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency at UAB Hospital is a one-year program designed to provide extensive experience in a variety of critical care units and build upon skills developed as a clinical pharmacist during a post-graduate year 1 (PGY1) residency. Its focus is the development of the skills and confidence necessary to independently provide advanced pharmacotherapy management to patients in critical care settings. In addition to qualifying the resident for clinical pharmacy specialist positions in critical care or faculty areas, the successful completion of the program will also prepare the graduate to attain board certification in critical care pharmacy (BCCCP).
The PGY2 Critical Care Residency Program at UAB Hospital includes a combination of required learning experiences (rotations) and elective learning experiences tailored to the residents’ interest areas.

Why did you choose UAB Medicine?
What attracted me to UAB Medicine was speaking with previous residents who commended their preceptors for the genuine care for residents’ growth and development. UAB offers exactly what I need to succeed as a future leader and as an adaptable critical care pharmacist. Thanks to ICUs of every specialty – along with services such as ECMO, transplantation, and ventricular assist device placement – I will gain exposure to a diverse, complex patient population that will prepare me for any ICU setting that I may practice in. The experiences provided by UAB such as committee involvement, precepting opportunities, and on-call participation will prove invaluable to my development as a clinician.
Our goal is to develop a highly skilled practitioner who will be successful in any setting they choose to practice after graduation.
