Pharmacy Training

Children are more than just small adults.  Prescribing medications for a young person is a science in and of itself. 

Our hospital provides a significant contribution to the treatment of children through its fourth-year pediatric pharmacy clerkship offered to 4th year University of Southern California School of Pharmacy students.  During the six-week rotation, students learn about medications prescribed for children and their applications, including:

  • Pharmacokinetics
  • Fluid and electrolytes
  • Pulmonary diseases
  • Neurological disorders
  • Gastroenterological diseases
  • Childhood immunizations
  • Diabetic Ketoacidosis
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Solid Organ Transplantation
  • Congenital Heart Disease
  • Renal Diseases
  • Rheumatological Diseases
  • Hematological Disorders
  • Neonatal Parenteral Nutrition
