The goal of the Baptist Cancer Center Pharmacy Residency Program is to transition PGY1 residency graduates from general practice to a specialized practice focused on the care of adult patients with cancer and hematologic disorders. After successful completion of the PGY2 residency program, the resident should possess the knowledge and skills to prepare them for clinical pharmacist or faculty positions and be eligible for attainment of board certification as an oncology pharmacist. The ASHP Educational Outcomes, Goals, and Objectives for Postgraduate Year Two (PGY2) Pharmacy Residencies in Oncology will be utilized to achieve this purpose.
Baptist Cancer Center is a tri-state network of 18 outpatient infusion centers, with flagship office in Memphis. We are part of a hospital system that includes 22 hospitals in Mississippi, West Tennessee, and East Arkansas. Our cancer center also contains a FACT Accredited Malignant Hematology Stem Cell transplant clinic.
As a PGY2 Oncology Pharmacy Resident at Baptist Cancer Center, the resident will be an integral part of the pharmacy department and will have the opportunity to participate in the complete care of patients as they navigate through their cancer diagnosis and treatment.
The program provides opportunities to work with our multi-disciplinary teams including Breast, Thoracic, Gastrointestinal/Genitourinary, Hematological, and Brain and Spine. The research department at Baptist Cancer Center is committed to bringing cutting edge clinical trials to our patients as part of our complete cancer care center. As a resident, you will have the opportunity to dive into clinical research and gain experience in the management of clinical trials. In addition, the resident will also be leading the Pharmacogenomics service, which includes screening and testing patients.
Throughout the year the resident will complete a research project and present the results to the Hematology/Oncology Pharmacy Association (HOPA) annual meeting.
In addition, the resident will also participate in precepting students from the University of Mississippi and University of Tennessee Pharmacy Programs.
Residents’ specific interests and needs will be used in developing individual programs. The program focuses on the training of multiple aspects of adult oncology/hematology pharmacy practice.
