Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) is the world's oldest and largest private institution devoted to the prevention, treatment, and cure of cancer. We have dedicated more than a century to patient care and innovative research. The Pharmacy Department at Memorial Sloan Kettering recognizes the value and need for an oncology specialty residency for pharmacists seeking a career in oncology practice.
PGY2 pharmacy residency training builds on the foundations of pharmacy practice established during Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and the PGY1 pharmacy residency experience. The MSKCC PGY2 Oncology Residency provides residents with a 12 month learning experience that prepares them to function independently as a clinical pharmacy practitioner in oncology, to serve as a fully integrated member of a multi-disciplinary team, and to optimize medications used in the provision of cancer care. Residents who successfully complete a PGY2 oncology pharmacy residency at MSKCC will possess competencies that prepare them for future clinical, research or academic positions, leadership roles in oncology, and board certification in oncology pharmacy.
