Pharmacy Residency Program Year One
The Children's National Medical Center Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Pharmacy Residency Program is designed to provide highly motivated residents an excellent opportunity for learning in a demanding and progressive environment. The purpose of the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at Children’s National Medical Center is to provide learning experiences centered on patient care and practice management that will enable residency graduates to pursue PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency or decentralized pediatric clinical pharmacist position upon completion of the program. The residency program will also provide teaching opportunities and an optional teaching certificate that will also develop pedagogical skills in the context of adjunct faculty appointment with affiliated pharmacy schools.
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. A teaching certificate program is also available through the Howard University School of Pharmacy.
More than 50 pharmacists have completed our PGY1 residency since the start of the program in 1980. Children’s National is a participating member of the ASHP Residency Matching Program. The PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency is currently in pending accreditation status.
