The PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency at Mayo Eugenio Litta Children's Hospital originated in 2003 under the umbrella of Mayo's accredited general pharmacy practice residency. In 2011, the program was accredited as a freestanding residency by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. Graduates practice across the U.S. as respected pediatric and neonatal pharmacy clinicians. The residency program is continuously evaluated for improvement opportunities to ensure graduates make a seamless transition into clinical practice. One candidate a year is selected on a competitive basis.
PGY-1 pharmacy residents at a pediatric hospital devote much of their time to comprehensive training as a member of the interdisciplinary team. A breadth of learning experiences has been designed to increase and refine clinical competency, provide evidence-based pharmacotherapeutic care plans and develop confidence as an independent practitioner.
Direct patient care services allow a resident to provide patient-specific pharmaceutical care services. Responsibilities include development of individualized care and monitoring plans for various patient populations. After coaching, instruction and modeling by a preceptor, residents are assessed and constructively critiqued on how to further refine the delivery of evidence-based recommendations.
Drug information is provided to patients, physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other allied health professionals. Feedback is provided to enhance drug information-retrieval skills using a variety of resources and modalities.
Pharmacokinetic monitoring is provided to eligible patients. Residents serve as an information resource by providing recommendations for appropriate assay procedures, evaluation of serum drug concentrations and appropriate documentation in the medical record.
