PGY-2 Oncology Pharmacy Residency
The purpose of the PGY-2 Oncology Pharmacy Residency Program is to provide the resident with the skills and knowledge required to become a competent pharmacy practitioner in today’s ever-changing cancer community. The mission of the program at University Health is to develop future pharmacists who will support the hospital’s mission to teach, heal, and discover in order to advance the health and wellbeing of the community.
The program is a 12-month postgraduate curriculum composed of inpatient and outpatient oncology care. The specific program for each resident varies based upon his or her goals, interests, and previous experience. However, all residents are required to complete rotations in core oncology subject areas considered to be essential to the pharmacy practitioner. Elective rotations are available to permit the resident flexibility in pursuing individual goals.
Additional learning experiences aimed at producing a well-rounded pharmacist include the development and completion of a major project related to oncology pharmacy practice, development of oral and written communications, patient education, participation in departmental committees, and operational pharmacy practice. Upon completion of the program, residents are awarded a residency certificate.
