Pharmacy Residency Program
Children's Wisconsin Pharmacy Residency Program trains pharmacists to develop and practice advanced clinical pharmacy management skills unique to the needs of the pediatric patient.
The mission of the Post-Graduate Year One Residency Program at Children’s is to train competent and independent practitioners of pediatric pharmacy in an academic, free-standing, pediatric health-system setting. The first-year residency program builds general pediatric pharmacy foundations in managing care of the pediatric patient, medication use systems specific to pediatric pharmaceutical care, and supports optimal medication therapy outcomes for patients with a broad range of pediatric disease states and achieves this through research, education, and multidisciplinary teamwork.
The mission of the Post-Graduate Year Two Residency Program at Children’s is to train competent and independent practitioners of advanced pediatric pharmacy in an academic, free-standing, pediatric health-system setting. The second-year residency program builds upon general pediatric knowledge in managing care of the critically-ill pediatric patient, medication use systems specific to pediatric pharmaceutical care in critical care and acute care areas as well as supports optimal medication therapy outcomes for complex patients with a broad range of pediatric disease states and achieves this through research, education, multidisciplinary teamwork, and leadership.
Additionally, the residency program follows the core mission of the hospital to achieve the vision of the healthiest kids in the nation. Our mission (CARE) is the work we do to achieve our vision:
Offering some of the nation's best medical care
Speaking up and protecting children
Finding cures to the illnesses that affect children
