Our Postgraduate Year Two (PGY2) Pediatric Specialty Pharmacy Residency Program has a long and distinguished history, stemming from our original program accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists in 1972. Our pediatric pharmacists round daily with the pediatric critical care/pediatric trauma team, five neonatal critical care teams, the hematology/oncology team, the antimicrobial stewardship/infectious diseases team, three large general pediatric inpatient medicine teams and the pediatric emergency department.

While providing clinical pharmacy services to all areas in Children’s Hospital, we also provide services in outpatient settings as well, including the Children's Hospital Outpatient Clinic, the Special Care Center, the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic, the Children's Day Hospital/Pediatric Sedation Suite and the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Clinic.

We partner with the University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy and the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics.


Our pediatric program (37000) offers one position. Prisma Health Richland-University of South Carolina has a total of 15 residents from all programs combined. No matter the residency program, all of our residents participate in a variety of strategically aligned activities (e.g., case conference/lunch and learn, residency leadership academy) that fosters camaraderie and fellowship within the residency class.
