Since the first resident completed training in 1990, our program has obtained approval and funding for three specialized oncology residency positions and one PGY-1 residency position. Residents participate in all aspects of oncology pharmacy practice pertaining to clinical practice and outcomes, research, and education. The residency contains a minor administrative and drug information component to facilitate clinical and/or research opportunities.

Additionally, the residency will help you develop skills in precepting students, drug information, research, presentations, writing and administration (ADRs, MUEs, pharmacoeconomics, and justification of services). The goal of our program is to prepare you for a clinical position in an established cancer center or to be able to design and implement a comprehensive oncology pharmacy service in another practice setting. Past residents have gone on to become college of pharmacy professors, research professors, residency directors, clinical practitioners and oncology medical scientists for major pharmaceutical companies.


It is essential for pharmacy graduates to obtain the specialized oncology knowledge base and clinical skills required to become competent in the pharmaceutical care of cancer patients. Pharmacy residencies serve as one of the best modalities for pharmacy graduates to obtain specialized skills by providing the opportunity to apply and integrate pharmaceutical care principles in the care of cancer patients under the close supervision of a preceptor. Our residency is designed to instill a philosophy of practice that embraces the concept of pharmacists being responsible and accountable for pursuing optimal drug therapy outcomes in the provision of oncology pharmaceutical care.
