Application Process


The critical care pharmacy residency at Lutheran General Hospital is based on the principles and philosophies set forth in the "Accreditation Standard for Pharmacy Practice Residency Training" established by the American Society of Hospital Pharmacists. The program provides comprehensive, postgraduate training in acute patient care, in medical, cardiac and surgical intensive care units and management of patients in the emergency department with an emphasis on pharmaceutical care for the critically ill patient. The program is flexible enough to provide the resident with an opportunity to concentrate on a practice area of special interest. The program goes beyond content knowledge from completion of a PGY1 in Pharmacy Practice to develop cognitive and professional skills in the critical care setting. The residency program participates in the ASHP residency-matching program for its candidates. The matched residents sign a year-long contract and must follow all conditions of being an Advocate Lutheran General Hospital employee as well as a Pharmacy Resident.

Intended Program Outcomes

Upon completion of the pharmacy practice residency,
the resident should be able to:

  1. Provide pharmaceutical care in a variety of critical care practice settings, as a competent, confident practitioner.
  2. Function as a member of the health care team, demonstrating maturity and effective interpersonal communication skills.
  3. Apply the highest standards of professional practice, demonstrating a commitment to the practice of pharmacy.
  4. Through self-assessment, be able to manage their own practice and monitor their own development.
  5. Effectively educate other health care professionals, patients and community members regarding health care issues.
  6. Demonstrate personal drive and enthusiasm to become a leader in the practice of pharmacy in a critical care setting.
