Pharmacy Residency PGY-2

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 appointment with affiliated pharmacy schools. An optional teaching certificate program will be available through the Washington Metropolitan Society of Health-System Pharmacists regional resident program (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.

Over 100 pharmacists have completed a residency at Children’s National 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 has been accredited since 2012 with four positions available.
