The PGY2 specialized residency program in oncology is designed to develop clinical pharmacy specialists equipped with the expertise and clinical aptitude for practice in acute and ambulatory oncology settings. PGY2 residents receive training in hematologic and solid cancers, symptom management, oncology pharmacy administration, and investigational therapeutics at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. Over 100,000 cancer patient visits occur annually across our three San Francisco campuses: Parnassus Heights, Mt. Zion, and Mission Bay. As a large clinical research institution, UCSF has over 250 active cancer clinical trials open at any given time. Residents will work in an interdisciplinary environment to optimize oncology pharmaceutical care and influence clinical outcomes for cancer patients. Required, longitudinal, and elective learning experiences in various oncology settings will enable the resident to cultivate problem-solving skills, work collaboratively with other healthcare professionals, and function independently as an oncology pharmacy practitioner. Teaching is also an integral component of the program as UCSF Health is closely affiliated with the UCSF School of Pharmacy. The resident will have the opportunity to teach Doctor of Pharmacy students in core curriculum courses, including an oncology elective, and to precept students and PGY1 residents on different rotations.
Applicants must be a graduate of an ACPE-accredited college of pharmacy or otherwise be eligible for licensure in California. Additionally, applicants must be participating in, or have completed, an ASHP-accredited PGY1 pharmacy residency program or one in the ASHP accreditation process (i.e., one with candidate or preliminary accreditation status).
