Established in 1996, our post graduate year two (PGY2) critical care pharmacy residency is an ASHP-accredited program that trains residents to care for critically ill patients. We also have a strong emphasis in academic pharmacy practice, including teaching and research.
Our program is operated on the state-of-the-art University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado. The campus, a complete complement of educational and clinical enterprises, is a major integrated academic health sciences center that includes Schools of Pharmacy, Medicine, Nursing, Physical Therapy and Dental Medicine.
The longitudinal practice site is the University of Colorado Hospital, with additional sites at affiliated hospitals within the Denver metro area.
