PGY2 Hematology/Oncology

The pharmacy residency in oncology builds on experiences in the PGY1 year and is designed to provide a well-rounded experience leading to the development of expert knowledge, skills, and clinical leadership in the practice of oncology pharmacy. This 12-month program offers training opportunities through a variety of clinical rotations and interactions with multidisciplinary healthcare teams. We offer a flexible program that focuses on the goals of the resident and is intended to provide clinical, research, and teaching experience. Graduates of the program should be prepared to pursue employment as a hematology/oncology pharmacotherapy clinical specialist in the acute care setting, as well as demonstrate competency in written and oral communication, and oncology research.

The program emphasizes clinical practice with required rotations in leukemia, lymphoma, bone marrow transplant, solid tumors, ambulatory oncology, investigational drug services, palliative care, and chemotherapy preparation. Elective rotations may be completed in any of the required rotations for an additional five weeks. Additional elective rotations include pediatric oncology and infectious diseases. Completion of a medication usage evaluation (MUE) and research project as well as participation in the Hematology/Oncology Subcommittee and Chemotherapy Safety Committee are also required.

This residency participates in the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Residency Matching Program and is fully accredited by ASHP.
