PGY2 Oncology Pharmacy Residency

The purpose of this residency program is to provide advanced training for pharmacists in the fields of oncology, hematology, and blood and marrow transplantation. At the end of the program, the resident will be able to practice independently and autonomously as an oncology clinical specialist in both inpatient and outpatient populations. The resident will be able to work as part of a multidisciplinary team to provide optimal pharmaceutical care for these patient populations.  In addition, pharmacists will be capable of developing and supporting quality improvement initiatives and research efforts in the field, conduct self-assessment, and commit to continuous self-learning. 

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.
