Pharmacy residency program

The PGY pharmacy residency program at Children's Wisconsin will provide the resident opportunity to enhance clinical skills in a pediatric acute care hospital while developing competence in direct patient care, practice management, and leadership. All residents are required to complete rotations in core areas within their assigned residency program. Once residents complete required core rotations, the residency experience is tailored based on their individual goals and interests. A broad range of elective rotations are available to allow residents flexibility in pursuing individual goals.

Major project

Residents must successfully complete a major project to fulfill the requirements of both the PGY-1 and PGY-2 residency programs. These projects focus on pediatric issues pertinent to clinical practice and quality improvement at Children's Wisconsin. The emphasis of each resident's major project allows for them to contribute a valuable service to the department and the hospital. This process allows the residents to develop their skills in medical literature review, technical writing, data collection and assessment, manuscript preparation, general organizational skills, and leadership skills.

Residents are required to present all major projects at the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Mid-year meeting and the Pediatric Pharmacy Association (PPA) annual meeting.
