Residents group

The 12-moth Post Graduate Year One (PGY1) Residency Program at Wolfson Children’s Hospital/ Baptist Health provides the resident the opportunity to accelerate their growth beyond entry-level professional competence in direct patient care and in practice management.

The program is committed to providing residents with the skills and knowledge required to become competent pharmacy practitioners. Our residents are expected to:

  • Provide pharmaceutical care to patients in various settings
  • Develop independent learning skills
  • Function as an integral member of the health care team
  • Promote and support a safe and effective medication use process
  • Provide drug information to health care providers
  • Maintain a professional ethic

Wolfson Children's Hospital/Baptist Health offers residents the opportunity to complete one of three residency programs, PGY-1, PGY-1 with pediatric emphasis, or PGY-1 Community Practice. The program of each resident varies based upon his or her goals, interests, and experience. Each resident is required to complete core rotations essential to the pharmacy practitioner. A variety of elective rotations are available, allowing residents the opportunity to pursue individual goals.

Residents are required to develop and complete a major research project, which will be presented at the Florida Residency Conference. Additionally, residents will have the opportunity to develop oral and written communication skills and participate in various leadership and practice management committees.

Upon successful completion of the residency program, residents will receive a Certificate of Completion.
