Pharmacy Residency at Baylor Scott & White McLane Children’s Medical Center – Temple

Pharmacy (PGY1) at Baylor Scott & White Health in conjunction with the University of Texas, College of Pharmacy


Baylor Scott & White McLane Children’s Medical Center offers pharmacy residents a unique PGY1 pharmacy experience in a pediatric setting. The Children’s Medical Center is the largest pediatric hospital in Central Texas, with 112 beds consisting of a 14-bed Emergency Department (level II trauma center), five operating rooms, a procedure suite, day surgery, 16-bed pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), 48-bed level IV neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and a 48-bed medical/surgical unit. The Medical Center also provides the convenience of outpatient follow up at the 5-story clinic and infusion center right next door.  As a part of the Baylor Scott & White Health System, the Medical Center serves as the primary academic setting for the Department of Pediatrics at Texas A&M College of Medicine, as well as hosts pharmacy students from the University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy and the Texas A&M University Irma Lerma Rangel College of Pharmacy.


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.
