Cook Children's is affiliated with University of Texas, University of North Texas, and Texas Tech Schools of Pharmacy.

Cook Children’s PGY1 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification, and eligible for postgraduate year two (PGY2) pharmacy residency training.

The Cook Children's post-graduate year two residency program helps residents transition from a general practice to a more specialized practice focusing on pediatric patients.
PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.
The Cook Children’s PGY2 pharmacy residency in pediatrics is designed to transition PGY1 residency graduates from generalist practice to specialized practice focused on the care of pediatric patients. Residency graduates are equipped to participate as integral members of interdisciplinary teams caring for pediatric patients assuming responsibility for pharmaceutical care. These residents acquire the capacity to deliver evidence-based care to pediatric patients within the limitations presented by the shortage of research in the use of medications in this patient population. They are able to prepare or supervise the preparation of the unique formulations required by pediatric patients as those patients' needs change according to their stage of growth and development.
