Ami Shah, PharmD., BCCCP

Clinical Pharmacy Specialist, Critical Care/Cardiothoracic ICU

Mount Sinai Morningside Medical Center

New York

Reasons for selecting this career path:

I received my Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy at Rutgers University in 2015. Post-graduation, I completed a PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency program at Abington-Jefferson Health and then completed a PGY2 residency specializing in Critical Care at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. I am passionate about providing optimal direct patient care for critically ill patients with an emphasis on monitoring pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters, optimizing complex medication regimens, and providing antibiotic stewardship. 

Professional Interests: 

  • Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)
  • Septic shock, 
  • Multi-organ failure
  • Post-operative intensive care

Interest in the NPF Executive Committee: 

As a member and Chair of the New Practitioners Forum Resident Advancement Advisory Group (RAAG), I am most interested in the opportunities for continued advancement of the pharmacy profession led by and in support of new practitioner pharmacists.

Benefits of being involved in ASHP as a New Practitioner:
The ASHP New Practitioners Forum offers an ability to build connections, to network, and to give back to the Pharmacy community. 

Fun Fact:
I am a NYC-based dancer and contract with professional dance companies within the tristate area. Apart from dancing, I enjoy spending time with family/friends and exploring new restaurants (still searching for NYC's best pizza spot!)
