PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency: Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital

The PGY-2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency Program at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital builds on the Doctor of Pharmacy education and PGY-1 Pharmacy residency experience to contribute to the development of pediatric clinical pharmacists in advanced or specialized practice. The Pediatric PGY-2 residency will 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 completed an accredited PGY-2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.
