Since 1884, Memorial Sloan Kettering 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 New York City’s Upper East Side and at additional sites in New York City, Westchester County, Long Island, and New Jersey — 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 400 employees, with approximately 275 pharmacists serving patients in 26 pharmacy satellites, as well as an annual budget exceeding $500 million.
The pharmacy department at MSK offers three PGY-2 residency programs, one focusing on Pediatric Oncology, one focusing on Adult Oncology and one focusing on Quality and Patient Safety allowing the resident to specialize in their areas of interest.
