Purpose and Mission Statement of the PGY-2 Pediatric Residency Program
Purpose Statement: The residency program builds on the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY-1 residency program experience to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in the specialized area of pediatrics. Our program is designed to equip the PGY 2 resident with the skills necessary to optimize pediatric care as independent practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge by incorporating both into the provision of medication management. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY-2 pharmacy residency should possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacist and/or faculty positions and poise them to be eligible for attainment of board certification in the specialized practice area.
Mission Statement: The PGY-2 Pediatric Residency Program at Lee Health is committed to providing excellent training experiences to advance the resident's clinical skills, knowledge base and professional interests. The program is dedicated to preparing future pediatric pharmacy clinicians and leaders by promoting confidence, leadership and professional skills.
