Location: Houston, Texas
PGY1 Pharmacy & PGY2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership/Masters
The ASHP accredited PGY1/PGY2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership residency at Texas Children’s Hospital is designated to develop knowledge, skills, attitudes, and abilities needed for success in pharmacy practice and health-system pharmacy administration. Residents will have the opportunity to function independently as valued members of patient care teams. Residents will gain leadership experience by integrating knowledge and experience in operations and clinical services. A pediatric teaching hospital is able to provide residents with healthcare management training while also providing a focused opportunity to explore the specialized needs of the pediatric environment. Upon completion of the program, the resident will have developed the clinical knowledge, business acumen, and professional skills required to become effective pharmacy leaders in any health care organization.
Graduates of the program will receive a PGY1 Pharmacy Residency certificate and a PGY2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership Residency certification from Texas Children’s Hospital. Additionally, residents of the program earn a Master of Science in Pharmacy Leadership and Administration from the University of Houston College of Pharmacy.
