The PGY-2 Pediatric Residency is a one-year training program designed to provide our resident with the experience needed to practice as a highly-skilled clinical pharmacist in the pediatric setting. Our residents train under the supervision of experienced clinical pharmacists in the care of infants, toddlers, children and adolescents. Our program is focused on direct patient care, practice management, and education of healthcare providers, patients and caregivers.
Cleveland Clinic Children’s is a 120 bed hospital that consistently ranks as a national leader in pediatric clinical care by U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Children’s Hospitals”. It is part of the Cleveland Clinic Health System and is a non-freestanding children’s hospital that resides on the Cleveland Clinic Main Campus.
PGY-2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residents will be exposed to a broad range of experiences and activities intended to build the skills necessary to practice independently. Areas of focus include general pediatrics, pediatric intensive care, and neonatology, with additional experiences in pediatric infectious diseases, hematology/oncology and cardiology. The resident can choose from a number of elective rotations to build and enhance competencies. In addition, the resident will conduct a year-long research project and present the results at the PPAG annual conference as well as prepare a manuscript for publication. Presentation skills will be enhanced by giving formal presentations throughout the year. Additional requirements are participation in hospital committees and inpatient staffing in the pediatric pharmacy satellite.
