Supvr Pharmacy Services
Established in 2015, our post graduate year two (PGY2) Emergency Medicine Pharmacy program has a strong emphasis in the care of patients in the emergency department and critical care settings, as well as 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 primary practice site for the PGY2 Emergency Medicine program is the University of Colorado Hospital, with additional sites at affiliated hospitals within the Denver metro area. Our program is designed to develop competencies necessary for specialized practice in emergency medicine and critical care pharmacotherapy.
The program is also individualized to meet the needs and interests of our residents.
We allow for multidisciplinary learning through the utilization of an ED/critical care simulation lab, resident quality and safety conferences and collaboration with our well-established critical care pharmacotherapy group. Ample opportunities for didactic and experiential teaching exist in the pharmacy and medical schools on campus, including precepting clerkship rotations for PharmD students and PGY1 residents.
Our program focuses on enhancing clinical skills and preparing the resident to practice in an academic or community emergency medicine setting. A research project is required for successful completion of the residency; residents will be involved with selection of specific research projects according to clinical interests. An administrative project is also required and will be completed working in conjunction with the emergency department administrative fellow and other emergency department personnel. Residents should expect to gain experience in teaching, medical writing and publishing.
