  • About the Pharmacy Residency Program

    Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is a 490 bed tertiary care academic medical center which offers postgraduate year one (PGY1) pharmacy residency training. The purpose of the PGY1 residency program is to train pharmacists to be competent in providing direct patient care to a variety of pediatric patient populations. Individuals completing the residency program will have the skills needed to complete a PGY2 Pharmacy Residency in Pediatrics or to practice as a decentralized staff pharmacist in a pediatric setting.

    The outcomes of our program include the ability to:

    • Manage and improve the medication use process
    • Provide evidence-based patient centered medication therapy management with interdisciplinary teams
    • Exercise leadership and practice management skills
    • Demonstrate project management skills
    • Provide medication and practice-related education/training
    • Utilize medical informatics

    The residency offers training in general and subspecialty pediatrics, critical care (PICU, CICU, NICU), transplantation, ambulatory patient care and practice management. The residency program tailors the professional goals of the resident by complementing required activities with a wide selection of elective activities.

    Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center provides the ideal tertiary and ambulatory care settings to foster the development of a contemporary pediatric pharmacy practitioner. The resident will participate in daily patient centered interdisciplinary rounds, attend pertinent committee meetings, participate in P&T and Performance Improvement activities and contribute to the teaching activities of the department. The resident will participate in all aspects of pharmaceutical care provided at the Medical Center.

    Each resident will be expected to complete a major residency project during the year. The project must deal with a subject pertinent to pharmaceutical care services within the Medical Center. It must be of direct benefit to the patient care. The resident is expected to complete the project and submit a written manuscript in a format suitable for publication.

    As part of the total educational experience, the resident will be required to staff the pharmacy every third weekend. The resident will alternate covering distributive and clinical activities during this service component.

    This one year residency begins June 16, 2014. The residency offers a stipend of $51,000 and full employee benefits.
