The PGY2 Pediatric Specialty Residency at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital is a 12-month, ASHP accredited program designed to foster the development of the clinical knowledge, research skills, and leadership experience necessary to provide comprehensive and high quality pharmaceutical care to pediatric patients. Pharmacists completing this program will have made great strides at earning professional credibility and be capable of functioning with a high level of maturity, professionalism, and expertise in their chosen pediatric pharmacy career path.
The PGY2 pharmacy residency in pediatrics is designed to build upon the foundation provided by completion of an accredited Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree program and an ASHP-accredited postgraduate year one (PGY1) pharmacy residency program and contribute to the development of the clinical pharmacist as a specialist in pediatric pharmacy practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings.
Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pediatric pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with pediatric board certification. Groomed for leadership, pediatric pharmacy residency graduates can be expected to continue their pursuit of expertise in clinical practice, serving as the ultimate resource for information about medications used in the care of children. In addition, graduates will possess advanced skills enabling them to identify the pharmacotherapy and medication-use training needs of other health care professionals caring for pediatric patients; to deliver effective training to those health care professionals; and to contribute to public health efforts for health improvement, wellness, and disease prevention.

Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital provides expert pediatric care for children and families from all across the state of Florida and beyond. We provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care for infants, children and teens with some of the most challenging medical problems.
As a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, we provide access to the most innovative treatments and therapies. Taking part in pediatric medical education and clinical research helps us to provide world-class care in more than 43 pediatric medical and surgical subspecialties.
More than half of 259 beds are devoted to intensive care level services. We are the regional pediatric referral center for Florida's west coast. Physicians and community hospitals count on us to care for critically ill patients and to perform complex surgical procedures.
Parents count on us, too. Our philosophy of family-centered care means that family members are an important part of the healthcare team. We put this philosophy into action by including parents in making decisions and plans for their child's care. Patients who are old enough to take part in these discussions are included, too.
We asked patients, parents and our staff ...to share ideas to help us design the 259-bed Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital that we opened in January 2010. The result was a spacious and bright hospital with individual rooms where parents can comfortably spend the night. Combining the latest technology and our commitment to family-centered care, our hospital provides an ideal environment for healing.
