The program is customized to meet the individual needs and goals of the resident by providing numerous opportunities for inpatient and ambulatory patient care, research, teaching, and scholarship. Upon completion of this residency, the pharmacist will be a confident clinical pharmacy practitioner in pediatrics who engages in multidisciplinary collaboration, demonstrates advanced critical thinking skills, and is able to design and implement complex medication recommendations.
