Pharmacy Residency Program
Children’s Hospital & Medical Center offers a single Post-Graduate Year 1 (PGY1) pharmacy practice residency position. The PGY1 residency program has received American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) accreditation.

The Pharmacy residency at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center is a unique practice experience in a stand-alone pediatric hospital.

In addition, the resident will be provided opportunities to serve as a preceptor for pharmacy students, participate in didactic lectures and provide formal presentations to other health care providers.
