The Critical Care Pharmacy Residency Program at Geisinger Medical Center prepares you for the challenges of critical care. Our residency offers a dynamic and innovative experience for pharmacists who aim to become exceptionally skilled critical care clinicians. Besides robust, diversified experiences in clinical care pharmacy, you’ll have opportunities to cultivate teaching and leadership skills.
As a pharmacy resident at our academic medical center, you will train in specialized intensive care units including a cardiothoracic/vascular unit, trauma unit, neonatal intensive care unit, neuroscience unit, pediatric intensive care unit and surgical unit. We are a Level I Trauma Center and Comprehensive Stroke Center. You’ll learn to respond to all inpatient adult code and stroke alerts. Our ambulatory Post Intensive Care Clinic serves our patients across the continuum of care.
At Geisinger, we take pride in being at the cutting edge of technological innovation. This residency is designed to train future leaders in critical care pharmacy practice. At our state-of-the-art simulation center, you can hone skills collaboratively with other medical fellows and residents. Our electronic ICU platform allows us to provide critical care services to Geisinger hospitals throughout the state. We’re pleased to host learners from more than 15 schools of pharmacy, three pharmacy residency programs, Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, Bloomsburg University School of Nursing and numerous medical residency and fellowship programs.
In the Geisinger Critical Care Pharmacy Residency, you’ll train with a diverse multidisciplinary team. Our pharmacists are board certified in critical care, cardiology, pharmacotherapy, infectious diseases, pediatrics, nutrition support, oncology and more. Our physicians are all board certified in critical care medicine from fields including internal medicine, pulmonary, general surgery, trauma surgery, anesthesia, neurology and emergency medicine. In addition, our faculty hold advanced degrees in fields such as philosophy and business. Work and learn from them alongside critical care nurses and respiratory therapists in a truly collaborative, team-based approach to critical care.
