PGY2 Pediatric Residency: Augusta

Program Description

The University of Georgia College of Pharmacy and Augusta University Medical Center provide a 12-month ASHP Accredited PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Residency program. Residents are enrolled as graduate assistants for the College of Pharmacy and The University of Georgia Graduate School awards a graduate certificate for successful completion of the residency program.

This post-graduate experience provides comprehensive training in many areas of pediatric pharmacy. The flexibility of the program allows residents to individualize the residency to meet their specific needs and interests. The residency practice site is the 149-bed Georgia Health Sciences Children’s Medical Center located in Augusta, GA. The hospital is a national leader in patient and family-centered care. The hospital serves as the area’s only regional pediatric trauma center and specializes in neonatology, cardiology, surgery, pulmonology, neurology, and hematology. Residents provide pediatric clinical pharmacy services in a variety of areas throughout the year. Residents also participate in patient-care area pharmacy coverage on the weekends, assist in the teaching and training of Pharm.D. students, and are responsible for completing a research project suitable for publication in a professional journal.
