McLane Medical Center

The residency is a 12-month, ASHP accredited program that builds upon the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of confident clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for PGY2 pharmacy residency training.

The clinical pharmacy staff invests in the next generation of pharmacists by working with the resident to increase professional development, clinical involvement, and develop pediatric-focused understanding of pharmacotherapy. The pharmacists at McLane’s Children’s Medical Center are an integral part of the patient care team.

Upon completion of the program, the pharmacy resident will be proficient in providing evidence-based and patient-specific medication therapy management for pediatric patients. In addition, the resident has the opportunity to complete a teaching certificate via the University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy and co-precept pharmacy students throughout the year.
