Erin Munsel, PharmD, BCPPS
Residency Program Director 

General Description

This is a one-year ASHP accredited PGY2 residency that is designed to develop practitioner expertise in pediatric pharmacotherapy and clinical skills by providing a diverse number of experiences in pediatrics. The C.S. Mott Children’s and Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital is a 348-bed tertiary care academic medical center that will provide the resident with educational experience encompassing a variety of activities with emphasis on pediatric therapy management. Experience can be gained in general pediatrics (including pulmonology, hematology/oncology, neurology, nephrology and gastroenterology), pediatric infectious diseases, pediatric and neonatal intensive care, pediatric cardiology, pediatric surgery, pediatric bone marrow transplant, academia, emergency medicine, and more! The resident will gain experience in the ambulatory care setting in the pediatric pulmonary clinic, primarily focused on asthma and cystic fibrosis. We also offer the opportunity to teach in the pediatric elective course at the college of pharmacy.

Additional experiences include precepting APPE and PGY1 residents (as available) and an adjunct faculty appointment at the University of Michigan College of Pharmacy. The resident will also have two publication opportunities via research and writing projects, participation in code response, and other opportunities tailored to meet the individual resident's interests.

The Department of Pharmacy Services at the University of Michigan Health will be recruiting for one pediatric pharmacy PGY2 resident for the 2024-2025 residency year.
