ASHP recognizes the need for generalist, clinical practitioner, specialized practitioner, and manager/supervisor skill sets. The vast majority of residency programs in existence focus on the clinical/specialized practitioner.
Pediatric drug distribution is a specialized area of practice that has all of the challenges of adult drug distribution plus numerous other intricacies. Newly licensed and experienced pharmacists must undergo significant training before they are ready to practice independently in the pediatric setting. Managers may also benefit from training in pediatric environments, where they will learn not only basic management skills, but also the pediatric-specific issues that make this environment both challenging and rewarding.
This program grants the successful graduate a Master of Science degree from The Ohio State University and a PGY1/PGY2 Residency Certificate in Health-System Pharmacy Administration from Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The program offers an optional opportunity to complete a Master of Health Administration degree by extending the duration of the residency. The residency has full ASHP-accreditation.
