Pharmacy Residency Program
About Our Program
PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.
Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles offers a one-year, post-graduate pharmacy practice residency with an emphasis in pediatrics.
Pharmacists completing this residency will be competent practitioners. As a part of the multidisciplinary team, they will manage drug therapy for common pediatric disease states and provide safe and cost-effective pharmaceutical care. The rotations will enable the pharmacy residents to gain exposure to a wide variety of pediatric subspecialties and prepare candidates to be a pediatric pharmacist in an acute care setting or to advance to a PGY-2 training in their area of choice.
