Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Children’s Pharmacy is leading the world in many patient safety initiatives, including electronic physician order entry. This provides us with clear orders, with drug-drug and drug-allergy alerts, for both the pharmacists and physicians. Although technology such as this is truly improving patient care, Children’s best resources are our employees. We continue to be successful in recruiting bright and enthusiastic individuals who are making a difference in the lives of our kids. Our employees come from a variety of backgrounds, including the retail pharmacy setting. We have been very successful in developing retail pharmacists into successful pediatric clinicians. This is done by providing extensive training and allowing staff sufficient time to familiarize themselves with the concepts of pediatric medicine. Employees join our team with different skill sets, which gives us the opportunity to tailor training to meet individual needs.
At Children’s Hospital, we are dedicated to providing our staff with a positive work-life balance. Full-time pharmacists are offered four 10-hour days, with an every third weekend rotation.
I invite you to take a closer look at the Pharmacy Department at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. We certainly are making a difference in the lives of children we serve.
