One residency position is available for the coming residency year.
The Moses Cone pediatric pharmacy residency takes pride in the development of highly skilled clinical pediatric pharmacists. The philosophy we follow each year is to introduce and challenge the resident to pediatric practices while building upon the resident’s strengths and interests. At Moses Cone Hospital, the pharmacist plays a critical role in the development of patient treatment options ensuring the patient receives evidence based and cost-effective treatment. The collaboration among pharmacy and other disciplines across our spectrum of pediatric services allows pharmacy to help drive key initiatives providing optimal pediatric pharmacotherapy.
PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.
The PGY-2 Pediatric residency program at Cone Health is a 12-month appointment providing advanced training in contemporary pediatric pharmacy practice by focusing on patient care, clinical research, administrative services and education. Residents, working with experienced preceptors, are able to learn in a variety of clinical settings, from General Pediatrics, to NICU, and Pediatric Ambulatory Specialty Clinics. Within a flexible framework, residents complete rotations and select electives both on and off-site. Our collaborative relationships with nearby university teaching hospitals allow the resident to experience a variety of acute patient populations including ECMO, hematology, oncology, and transplant. The resident will be involved in precepting pharmacy students from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, High Point University School of Pharmacy, Campbell University School of Pharmacy and PGY1 pharmacy residents. Formal classroom teaching experiences are required at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (Adult Nurse Practitioner Pharmacotherapy) and the Fred Wilson School of Pharmacy at High Point University. In addition, the resident will conduct practice-based research and lead quality improvement initiatives.
