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 location 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 our 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 MSK continues to broaden through the implementation of innovative positions focusing on improving patient care. Currently, the Pharmacy Department has more than 375 employees, with approximately 225 pharmacists serving patients in 25 pharmacy satellites, as well as an annual budget exceeding $500 million.
The Pharmacy Department offers three PGY-2 residency programs — focusing on pediatric oncology, adult oncology, and quality and patient safety, respectively — allowing the resident to specialize in his or her area of interest.
