The Children's National Postgraduate Year Two (PGY2) Pediatric Pharmacy Residency Program provides learning experiences centered on patient care and practice management that will enable residency graduates to pursue advanced clinical pharmacist and clinical specialist positions in pediatrics after completion of the program. The residency program will also provide teaching opportunities that will develop pedagogical skills in the context of adjunct faculty appointments with affiliated pharmacy schools. An optional teaching certificate program will be available through the University of Maryland (this will be required for residents who have not previously completed one). The Division of Pharmacy is affiliated with Howard University School of Pharmacy, University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, Virginia Commonwealth University and Shenandoah University as well as other pharmacy schools around the country.
 
The PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency has been accredited since 2012 with three positions available (2 traditional track and 1 PSP critical care track). 
 
PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency training to develop pharmacist practitioners with knowledge, skills and abilities as defined in the educational competency areas, goals and objectives for advanced practice areas.
