Purpose of the Program
Baptist MD Anderson’s Pharmacy Graduate Year 2 (PGY2) Oncology Pharmacy residency program builds on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) and Pharmacy Graduate PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in Hematology/Oncology. PGY2 residencies provide residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care that improves medication therapy.
Residents who successfully complete this residency will be prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or another specialized position, and be eligible for board certification in Oncology.
The resident will function as an integral part of the department's and institution's patient care services.
Throughout the program, the resident will have practice responsibilities, be assigned to departmental and interdepartmental committees, and be involved with departmental activities.

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.
