Lakeland Regional Health (LRH) is Florida’s fifth largest hospital with 864 beds located between Tampa and Orlando. LRH is a comprehensive tertiary referral hospital operating as a Level II Trauma Center, a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the nation’s busiest single-site Emergency Department. LRH handles over 2,100 trauma visits annually and holds accreditations for its Advanced Primary Stroke Center and Chest Pain Center. LRH has three Intensive Care Units (ICU) – medical, surgical, and trauma – with a total of 68 beds.
The purpose of the LRH PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency is to provide future clinical pharmacy specialists with the necessary skills needed to practice in either a medical, surgical, or trauma critical care practice or as an adjunct or non-tenure track faculty position. The ASHP-accredited residency is a 12-month, organized, directed, postgraduate training program focusing on the development of the skills and competencies necessary to provide optimal pharmaceutical care to critically ill patients. Under the guidance of specialty trained preceptors, the resident will develop advanced clinical skills and professional confidence. The resident is expected to become an integral component of the multi-disciplinary critical care team working with physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, dieticians, and other pharmacists to provide optimal care to critically ill patients. The resident will actively participate in multi-disciplinary rounds daily.
