CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System (CSRHS) is one of the top healthcare organizations in South Central Texas and has hospitals located on four campuses. The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio campus is San Antonio’s first freestanding children’s hospital located in the heart of downtown San Antonio. Founded in 1869 by the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word of Houston and San Antonio, CHRISTUS Santa Rosa is a Catholic, faith-based, nonprofit health and wellness ministry dedicated to extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ and providing the highest quality medical care and services available. In February 2013, CHRISTUS Santa Rosa, Baylor College of Medicine, and Texas Children’s Hospital began to work in collaboration to ensure that the children of San Antonio and South Texas will have access to world-class pediatric care.

The Pharmacy Department at the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio is continuing to expand its services throughout the hospital. We offer 24 hour inpatient services and have decentralized pharmacy services during the week in the neonatal and pediatric intensive care units, hematology/oncology, and emergency department. We have built relationships with University of Texas College of Pharmacy and the University of the Incarnate Word College of Pharmacy which serve to benefit both the regional hospitals and the residents.

The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency is an ASHP-accredited program based in a pediatric hospital with two positions offered each year. The residency program incorporates many aspects of clinical pharmacy practice by offering a broad spectrum of experiences. Residents have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of services including pharmacokinetics, formulary management, medication safety programs, and continuous quality improvement initiatives. Rotations are 4-5 weeks long and tailored to the resident’s interest. Required rotations during the residency year include pediatric critical care, pediatric hematology/oncology, neonatal intensive care, general pediatrics, pediatric emergency medicine, and infectious disease. Elective rotations include but are not limited to academia, family medicine, transplant, geriatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, or pediatric pulmonary clinic services. Our residents are expected to present pharmacy practice research at the national and regional level. The residents also have the opportunity to obtain a teaching certificate through UT College of Pharmacy and are encouraged to become pharmacy preceptors once all requirements according to the Texas State Board of Pharmacy are met.
