Curriculum

Residency requirements
As a PGY-2 oncology pharmacy resident, much of your time will be devoted to comprehensive training as a member of the interdisciplinary hematology/oncology team. Direct patient care services allow you to practice providing patient-specific pharmaceutical care in a variety of settings, both acute and ambulatory. Responsibilities include development of individualized care and monitoring plans for hematology, oncology and stem cell transplant patient populations. After coaching, instructing and modeling by a preceptor, you will be constructively critiqued on how to further refine the delivery of evidence-based recommendations.
