The PGY2 Oncology Residency at Nebraska Medicine offers a unique and stimulating learning environment which provides comprehensive clinical training in hematology and oncology pharmacy practice. The goal of the residency program is to develop clinical practitioners who specialize in the care of oncology patients and also have an interest in education and research. After orientation, residents will participate in ten months of clinical rotations in addition to longitudinal experiences in our outpatient infusion center, teaching, and clinical research.
Nebraska Medicine is a nationally respected cancer center and one of the founding members of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN). PGY2 Oncology pharmacy residents at the medical center will have the opportunity to work on the forefront of cancer treatments with nationally recognized practitioners. The resident will be integrally involved with health-care professionals throughout the continuum of patient care, including patient education, assessment, and therapeutic recommendations. Working with experienced pharmacy clinicians, the PGY2 pharmacy resident also will gain experience serving as a preceptor for pharmacy students and PGY1 pharmacy residents.
