The Henry Ford Cancer Institute (HFCI) is one of the largest cancer institutes in the state of Michigan, treating more than 14,000 patients per year and offering multidisciplinary comprehensive cancer care at both the main Henry Ford Hospital campus as well as several of satellite locations within the Henry Ford Health System.
The one-year pharmacy residency in Hematology/Oncology at Henry Ford Hospital has been developed to produce a pharmacy clinical specialist with a robust knowledge of advanced disease-specific content and skills that will allow them to be capable of practicing in a variety of different settings. Residents will work alongside clinical pharmacists in both the ambulatory and inpatient environments allowing for pharmacist mentoring and modeling as well as for integration into the collaborative practice model with close physician and patient interactions. Residents will have the opportunity to enhance foundational skills obtained in PGY-1 residency via interaction with the center’s current PGY-2 residents in critical care, infectious disease and solid organ transplant, PGY-1 residents and longitudinal advanced pharmacy practice (LAPP) students.
