The Scott & White Department of Pharmacy, in conjunction with the UT College of Pharmacy, offers six positions as hospital-based, ASHP-accredited pharmacy practice residencies designed to provide broad training and experience in hospital pharmacy practice.  Five of the positions are adult hospital pharmacy practice positions; one of the five has a hematology-oncology emphasis. The sixth position emphasizes pediatric pharmacy practice at the McLane Childrens’ Hospital - Scott & White. The residents divide the year between clinical rotations and Scott & White patient care pharmacist responsibilities. The combination of training and practice responsibilities provide a blend of experience for highly motivated individuals with a significant interest in hospital pharmacy practice who are beginning their professional careers.  Opportunities are also available for collaborative research and teaching experiences for the resident.
