Since 1884, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has been one of the nation's premier organizations dedicated to the control and cure of cancer through patient care, research, and education. The 21st century marks an era of continued expansion at our main campus, on Manhattan's Upper East Side, and at additional sites in New York City, Westchester County, and New Jersey, as well as on Long Island — giving even more people access to high-quality cancer care.
The Pharmacy Department attends to the medication needs of our patients, providing comprehensive clinical and dispensing services in both ambulatory care and inpatient settings. The role of the pharmacist at Memorial Sloan-Kettering continues to broaden through the implementation of innovative positions focusing on improving patient care. Currently, the Pharmacy Department has more than 300 employees, with approximately 175 pharmacists serving patients in 20 pharmacy satellites, as well as an annual budget exceeding $300 million.
The pharmacy department at Memorial Sloan-Kettering offers two PGY-2 residency programs, one focusing on adult oncology and one focusing on pediatric oncology, allowing residents to specialize in their areas of interest.
