Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is a 629 bed tertiary care academic medical center which offers postgraduate year one (PGY1) pharmacy residency training in general pediatrics and postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training specializing in Medication-Use Safety.
The goal of the PGY1 pharmacy residency 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 goal of the PGY2 pediatric pharmacy residency is to develop skills required to become a proficient pediatric clinical pharmacy specialist. The residency program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in pediatric pharmacy. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pediatric pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced pediatric patient care or other specialized pediatric positions, along with board certification.
The goal of the PGY2 medication-use safety pharmacy residency is to learn the fundamental skills required to become an organizational leader in the achievement of medication-use safety under direct supervision within the Pharmacy Division of a Medical Center dedicated to the care of infants, children and adolescents. Individuals completing the residency program will have the skills needed to lead medication-use safety programs at pediatric institutions while maintaining both clinical and dispensing knowledge.
