Scott & White Memorial Hospital is a 636-bed tertiary care facility. Founded in 1904, our hospital also includes the Scott & White Clinic in Temple, multiple regional clinics throughout Central Texas, and over 200,000-member health plan. Scott and White Memorial Hospital is part of Baylor Scott & White Health network spanning across Texas.  Scott & White Memorial Hospital is a Level 1 Trauma Center and is an academic health science center, serving as a major teaching facility for the College of Pharmacy, The University of Texas at Austin, and the Rangel College of Pharmacy and the College of Medicine, Texas A&M Health Science Center.

The Scott & White Pharmacy 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 inpatient pharmacy services, home infusion services, anticoagulation, diabetes and dyslipidemia management clinics and a wide range of clinical pharmacy services provided by Scott & White patient care pharmacists and clinical specialists. Clinical specialists currently practice in a variety of specialty areas: adult medicine, pediatrics, cardiology, internal medicine, hematology/oncology, solid organ transplant, 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 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.  Four positions are adult hospital pharmacy practice positions, one position with a hematology-oncology emphasis, and the sixth position emphasizes pediatric pharmacy practice at the McLane Children’s Hospital. The residents divide the year between clinical rotations and 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.
