PGY2 Pediatric Residency Program | Overview

Program overview

The PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency Program at Boston Children's Hospital is a postgraduate educational and training experience designed to develop pharmacists with expertise in pediatric pharmacotherapy.

Our program is a 12-month postgraduate curriculum that offers training opportunities in acute care, ambulatory care, drug information and drug use policy development, clinical services and practice leadership. The program for each resident varies based on his or her goals, interests and experience. Upon completion of the ASHP accredited program, trainees are awarded a residency certificate.

Residents are expected to:
