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:

  1. Develop and build the knowledge and clinical skills required to practice as an independent oncology practitioner.
  2. Understand the role of continuous professional development through literature evaluation, didactic lectures, roundtable discussions, self-learning, and continuous self-reflection.
  3. Apply evidence-based guidelines and standards in tailoring the treatment plan to maximize patient care and outcomes.
