Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center (ASLMC) is a world-class tertiary care center offering a wide variety of medical and surgical critical care services and is especially recognized for its expertise in cardiology and as a certified stroke center. ASLMC serves as the primary training ground for critical care pharmacy with 125 licensed ICU beds in six specialized ICUs, cared for by dedicated clinical pharmacists. Affiliation with other hospitals within the Aurora system offers additional opportunities in a variety of practice settings. The Aurora PGY-2 residency focuses on direct patient care in order to strengthen critical care fundamentals, but offers autonomy through teaching, research, and practice management responsibilities in order to best meet the needs of the resident.
All applicants must apply through PhORCAS and meet the following criteria:
Graduate of an ACPE-accredited School of Pharmacy and ASHP-accredited PGY1 Pharmacy Residency program
Eligible for pharmacist licensure in Wisconsin – residents are expected to be licensed as a pharmacist in the state of Wisconsin prior to starting their residency program and sit for their exams at the first available opportunity.

The pre-employment physical and drug screen must be completed at a designated Aurora Health Care location between May 15 and June 1.
