The program was initiated in July 2020 and is actively working toward accreditation by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).
Our one-year specialty program is designed to provide specialized training for residents interested in oncology. Residents will gain experience comprehensive management in a diverse population of cancer patients who are at various places in the spectrum of their disease from initial diagnosis to end of life care.
The program provides a variety of learning experiences, including medication management, development of guidelines and protocols, practice leadership, drug information, teaching, and research. The structure and learning experiences will be continuously customized to meet each resident's professional and personal goals.
Upon successful completion of a PGY2 Oncology Pharmacy Residency, residents are prepared for providing advanced patient care in the inpatient or ambulatory setting in a community-based or academic setting, clinical faculty members at a college of pharmacy or other specialized positions in the oncology practice setting, perform practice-related research, and serve patients, providers, and institutions as an authoritative resource in oncology medicine.
We currently accept one resident each year.
