Residency Special Features:   

Our program is a joint collaboration between LIU Pharmacy and The Brooklyn Hospital Center. The Emergency Department is a level two trauma center and a designated Regional Stroke and STEMI Center with more than 75,000 annual patient visits. The residency experience is designed to develop the resident into an independent practitioner with advanced expertise in emergency medicine by conceptualizing and integrating experience and knowledge. The resident will also receive a comprehensive experience to the three-legged stool of academia: teaching, service, and scholarship. Graduates will be prepared to assume positions in emergency medicine as highly qualified pharmacotherapy specialists by an institution or as assistant professors at a college of pharmacy, as well as be prepared to sit for the board certification exam in pharmacotherapy or critical care.

The program will include 7-8 months of clinical rotations in the Emergency Department in addition to an off-site toxicology rotation at the NYC Poison Control Center, MICU or SICU rotation, pediatrics ED/PICU rotation, elective ICU or ID rotation, and ambulance ride-along. Residents will participate in the 24-hour in-house on-call program where they will play a key role in emergency response and maintenance of clinical services for one 24-hour shift. Additionally, residents will participate in a critical care short-call weekend shift serving as a drug information resource to other health care providers, managing pharmacokinetic consults, evaluating use of restricted antibiotics, and responding to medical emergencies.
