Baylor Scott & White McLane Children’s Medical Center is a 112-bed pediatric facility consisting of a 14-bed Emergency Department, 4 operating rooms, a procedure suite, day surgery, 16-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), 48-bed Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and a 48-bed medical/surgical unit. The McLane Children’s Hospital is part of the Baylor Scott & White Health system, which includes Scott & White Medical Center – Temple, multiple regional clinics throughout Central Texas, and a 200,000-member managed care organization (Scott & White Health Plan). Scott & White is a major academic facility, serving as a major teaching site for The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy and the Texas A&M University Rangel College of Pharmacy and College of Medicine.

The Department of Pharmacy provides progressive, clinically oriented pharmacy services for the hospital, clinic and health plan. Included among the major departmental functions are 24-hour in-patient pharmacy services, home infusion services, cystic fibrosis, anticoagulation, diabetes and dyslipidemia management clinics and a wide range of clinical pharmacy services provided by pharmacists and clinical specialists. Clinical pharmacy specialists currently practice at Scott & White in a variety of specialty areas to include adult medicine, pediatrics, hematology/oncology, and ambulatory care.

In addition to provision of a wide array of clinically oriented patient care services, the Department of Pharmacy at Scott & White has a significant teaching/research presence within the institution. A major element of the departmental teaching mission involves offering both pharmacy practice and post-doctoral specialty residency training opportunities. The purpose of this residency is to provide postgraduate education to licensed pharmacists to strengthen their knowledge, skills, and abilities for pharmacy practice. This residency is to prepare pharmacist clinicians with pediatric interests for patient care positions in a challenging teaching hospital environment and/or continued specialization in a PGY-2 residency.
The Baylor Scott & White McLane Children’s Medical Center Pharmacy offers one position as a hospital based ASHP- accredited, PGY-1 pharmacy practice residency based in a pediatric facility. The program is designed to provide broad training and experience in pediatric hospital pharmacy practice. The resident spends time on NICU, Medical/Surgical and PICU teams, as well as in multiple other practice rotations and clinic settings. Opportunities for collaborative research and teaching are provided, and a research project is required. For those interested in teaching, an academic training program for residents is offered by the College of Pharmacy. This is an opportunity for highly motivated individuals with an interest in pediatric hospital pharmacy.
