The PGY2 Pediatric Residency is a patient focused comprehensive training program conducted at Iowa's only nationally ranked children's hospital. This 12-month program provides the necessary opportunities for highly motivated pharmacists to achieve their professional goals of becoming a pediatric clinical pharmacist. The residency is designed to expand skills developed during the PGY1 year to solve complex pediatric medication related problems presented in today's healthcare environment.
Upon completion of the program, residents will be proficient clinical pharmacy specialists qualified for clinical practice in a pediatric healthcare system and for adjunct or non-tenure track faculty appointments associated with a health science college. Early commitment to the PGY2 Pediatric Residency may be an option for those completing a PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at UIHC.
