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. The focus of this year long program is to further develop pharmacists in the specialty of pediatric pharmacy practice. Residents will be provided opportunities to function as independent practitioners integrating accumulated experience and knowledge into the provision of pediatric patient care. The program allows residents the unique opportunity to customize their learning experience to their desired specialty area(s). Upon program completion, residents are prepared to practice as part of an interdisciplinary team responsible for the care of pediatric patients and board certification.
