Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, one of the nation’s top pediatric hospitals as ranked by U.S. News and World Report, welcomes pharmacists to join our ASHP Accredited PGY2 Pediatric Residency Program.
As a PGY2 resident, you’ll further your professional competence, expand your clinical knowledge and develop a philosophy of pharmacy practice in a facility that’s committed to providing an exceptional health care experience to its patients. As a quaternary care referral center, with 397 licensed beds, and more than 13,000 inpatient admissions each year, we offer a challenging diverse caseload to our residents.
The post graduate year two (PGY2) pediatric pharmacy residency program at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford is a specialty training program that offers an environment to gain professional competence, expand clinical knowledge and develop a philosophy of pharmacy practice in pediatric patients. The program is flexible and allows residents to focus their experience in a pediatric subspecialty.
Our philosophy of residency training is to offer practical experiences in diverse, multidisciplinary environments in pediatrics. Our approach in the provision of pharmaceutical care is to provide comprehensive, patient-oriented services. The residency is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).
The practice model integrates distribution and clinical activities at the patient care level, and is supported by centralized drug distribution, support functions and management systems.
Residents participate in many clinical activities, including collection of data for Medication Utilization Evaluations (MUEs), in-services to the staff during their clinical rotations and inpatient medication teaching to patients. PGY2 pediatric residents regularly participate in the Pharmacy and Therapeutic Committee and Safe Medication Practices Committee. In addition to clinical services, the residents serve as preceptors to pharmacy students and post-graduate year one (PGY1) residents.
We are pleased to offer 2 positions in the PGY2 Pediatric Residency Program: 1 position in a pediatric specialty and 1 position in the administration track.
