PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency: Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital

Preceptors PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency

The PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency Program at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital is an ASHP accredited 12-month program designed to further develop pharmacists in the specialty of pediatric pharmacy practice. Our program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and PGY1 Pharmacy Residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 Pharmacy Residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.

Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital is a freestanding hospital located in sunny Hollywood, FL. We have been the recipient of several awards, including earning U.S. News & World Report's Best Children's Hospital rankings several years in a row, and being the world's first children's hospital named a Planetree Designated® Person-Centered Organization for the care provided to patients and their families.
