PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency
The PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital is an ASHP-accredited one-year postgraduate training program that begins on July 1st annually. Residents in the PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency program will participate in the care of premature infants, toddlers, older children, and adolescents.
Upon completion of this residency, pharmacists will be able to skillfully educate other pharmacy and pediatric practitioners. They will be able to optimize therapeutic outcomes by functioning as an integral member of a pediatric practice.
PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residents will be exposed to a broad range of experiences and activities intended to build the skills necessary to practice as a clinical pharmacist in the pediatric setting. Residents are required to complete an orientation month, along with 7 month-long rotations. The remaining months will consist of a research project month and 3 month-long elective rotations.
Residents will conduct a research project throughout their residency year that includes presenting the results at a regional residency conference and preparing a written manuscript. Presentation skills will be enhanced by giving an ACPE-accredited seminar presentation along with case presentations throughout the year. Residents will also gain experience with teaching and precepting through the completion of a Teaching Certificate program and co-precepting pharmacy students on clinical rotations.
