The PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency has been an ASHP-accredited residency program since 1980. The goal of the program is to increase the availability of clinical pharmacists with diverse and well-rounded experience in pediatric pharmacy practice. The program is the only PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency with a pediatric emphasis in the Washington metropolitan area.
PGY-1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills and abilities as defined in the educational competency areas, goals and objectives. Residents who successfully complete PG-Y1 residency programs will be skilled in diverse patient care, practice management, leadership and education and be prepared to provide patient care, seek board certification and pursue advanced education and training opportunities including postgraduate year two (PGY2) residencies.
The purpose of the PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency at Children’s National Hospital is to provide learning experiences centered on patient care and practice management that will enable residency graduates to pursue centralized or decentralized clinical pharmacist positions in pediatrics after completion of the program. The program will also prepare the graduates to pursue both board certification (e.g. BCPS or BCPPS) and/or a postgraduate year two (PGY-2) residency program. The residency program will also provide teaching opportunities and a required teaching certificate that will also develop pedagogical skills in the context of adjunct faculty appointment with affiliated pharmacy schools.
