The Pharmacy Department at Memorial Sloan-Kettering currently offers two PGY2 pharmacy residencies with the support of our clinical pharmacy division, one in adult oncology and one in pediatric oncology.
The Pharmacy Department at Memorial Sloan-Kettering recognizes the value and need for an oncology specialty residency for pharmacists seeking a career in oncology practice. The Adult Oncology Specialty Residency provides advanced training in clinical therapeutics for the adult cancer patient. The main goals of this one-year program are to help residents:
- Develop and build the knowledge and clinical skills required to practice as an independent oncology practitioner.
- Understand the role of continuous professional development through literature evaluation, didactic lectures, roundtable discussions, self-learning, and continuous self-reflection.
- Apply evidence-based guidelines and standards in tailoring the treatment plan to maximize patient care and outcomes.
