The residency program provides training in all aspects of oncology pharmacy practice. To accomplish this, the resident will spend one month orienting to the department, followed by completion of both core and elective learning experiences, thus allowing the resident the flexibility to pursue their individual goals. Completion of a research project is also required. Learning experiences are one month in duration.
Core experiences of the program include Adult Ambulatory Care (4 months total), Infusion Center/ Operations, Inpatient Adult, and Inpatient Pediatrics. Additionally, the resident is required to participate in longitudinal rotations including an Administrative/Drug Information, Education, Investigational Drug Service, and Pharmacy Service experiences. Elective experiences include Adult Outpatient Neuro-Oncology, Adult Outpatient Sarcoma, Mixed Tumors, Oncology Drug Information, and Infectious Diseases. Off-site electives may be arranged based on site availability and resident interest. New experiences may be explored to provide the resident experience in a wide-range of conditions; these should be discussed during the resident’s quarterly development meetings. Residents may elect to repeat any of the experiences listed above or take a PGY1 rotation (e.g. general pediatrics). Learning experiences may be repeated up to two times. Repeat experiences are expected to build on the knowledge and skills obtained in the first experience. More complete descriptions of each learning experience can be found in the comprehensive manual given during orientation.
Throughout the program, the resident will have practice responsibilities, be assigned to departmental and intradepartmental committees, and be involved with departmental activities. The resident will function as an integral part of the department's and institution's patient care services. The resident will also be responsible for constant self-evaluation. The resident should continually prepare and motivate themselves through self learning so that the resident may fully benefit from the residency.
