Ingrid Pan, PharmD
PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Resident
Ingrid Pan is a PGY2 Pediatric Pharmacy Resident at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital. She graduated with her Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy. During her years at Pitt, she worked as a pharmacy intern, participated in numerous student pharmacy organizations, and completed a pediatric-focused certificate. She completed her PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency at Palmetto Health Richland in Columbia, SC. Her interests include hematology/oncology, cystic fibrosis, and transitions-of-care. After graduation, she hopes to start her career as a clinic-based pediatric pharmacist at an academic medical center affiliated with a school of pharmacy in order to precept future residents and students.
The aim of her second-year residency project is to determine the incidence of intraventricular hemorrhage before and after discontinuation of the use of prophylactic indomethacin in premature neonates.
Titled “Evaluating Dosing and Efficacy of Tranexamic Acid (TXA) in Pediatric Scoliosis Surgery at an Urban Tertiary Pediatric Institution”, this research project focused on describing institutional prescribing patterns of TXA and efficacy of various TXA regimens on blood loss and blood transfusions in pediatric scoliosis surgery. Secondary outcomes included use of vasopressors within 48 hrs after spinal fusion, length of hospital stay, and incidence of adverse events in relation to various regimens used. This research will help Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital develop an institution-specific dosing guideline for TXA in pediatric scoliosis surgery.
Value of the UChicago Program
The Pediatric Pharmacy Residency at UChicago Comer Children’s Hospital provides an incredibly unique and multifaceted opportunity to diversify and expand upon leadership and clinical skills while training in an academic clinical environment. I am looking forward to train in an innovative and progressive care setting with high standards of practice and emphasis on camaraderie and compassionate approach to clinical pharmacy. This residency will equip me with the necessary clinical tools, exposure to a variety of patient populations, and involvement with numerous interdisciplinary opportunities in order to shape me into the pediatric pharmacist I strive to become.
