PGY2 Oncology Pharmacy Residency



The purpose of this 12 month specialty residency program is to provide advanced training for pharmacists in the fields of oncology, hematology, and blood and marrow transplantation. The resident will have the opportunity to work as an integral member within a multidisciplinary team to actively provide optimal pharmaceutical care for these complex patient populations. In addition, residents will participate in developing and supporting quality improvement initiatives, contribute to research efforts in the field, precept PGY1 pharmacy residents and pharmacy students, conduct self-assessment for professional development, and commit to continuous self-learning. Upon completion of the program, the resident will be able to practice independently as an oncology clinical specialist in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.  


The various components of this residency program shall be continuously evaluated to ensure the quality of each experience. As institutional and/or organizational dynamics change, revisions and modifications of the program may be necessary to fulfill the original established program goals.
