Clinical pharmacists are essential to our care model within the UW Carbone Cancer Center. They are accountable for working directly with multidisciplinary teams in the oncology clinic to provide high-quality evidence-based care. Pharmacists practice through delegation protocols to manage chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting, electrolyte imbalance, potential chemotherapy toxicities, and achieve therapeutic drug levels.
In addition to clinic activities, our pharmacists are also responsible for managing patients receiving oral chemotherapy within our cancer center and regional practice sites.
While this is primarily a clinic position, pharmacists also staff on our adult inpatient units. Part of this position would encompass inpatient staffing, holiday, and weekend requirements.
Education: Minimum – Bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy or a PharmD degree. Preferred – Completion of ASHP Accredited PGY1 Practice/Community and PGY2 Oncology Residency training program.
Work Experience: Minimum – One (1) year of clinical patient care and orders management experience or completion of an ASHP Accredited Residency training program.
Licenses and Certifications: Minimum – Licensed or eligible for licensure to practice pharmacy in the State of Wisconsin Certification by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties or another applicable certification as directed by hiring manager (new hires required to become certified within 18 months of hire date or eligibility date).
