The Duke Children's Hospital & Health Center is a 190 bed inpatient and expansive specialty outpatient facility dedicated to providing the best possible care for the patients and families served today. Duke Children’s is located within Duke University Hospital. The pediatric pharmacy residency provides an in-depth experience designed to enable development of practitioner-level basic knowledge, skill, and ability in pediatric pharmacotherapy. The pediatric residency is based in a variety of general and subspecialty areas within pediatric and neonatal medicine.
The resident will actively participate in interdisciplinary patient care rounds, teaching, medical/pharmacy conferences, and clinical research. Pediatric–based rotations include General Medicine, Infectious Disease, Cardiology, Neonatology, Critical Care, Cardiac Intensive Care, Hematology/Oncology, Blood and Marrow Transplantation, Solid Organ Transplantation, and Ambulatory Oncology and Ambulatory Infectious disease.
In addition to clinical responsibilities, the resident will develop the skills required to conceptualize and complete clinical research projects as well as provide education to pharmacy and other health care professionals. Opportunities for didactic and experiential training of Pharm.D. students are available through our affiliations with Campbell University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and the University of North Carolina Eschelman School of Pharmacy.
