PGY2 Critical Care

The purpose of the Maine Medical Center PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy Residency program is to prepare a specialty practitioner who is qualified to act independently to meet the needs of medical, surgical, cardiac, and neuroscience critical care patients, offer educational experiences to others, perform research, and achieve board certification through the development of accountability, practice patterns, habits and approaches using attained expert knowledge and skills.
