For Pediatric Hematology/Oncology PGY2 Residents
Based on ASHP requirements for an Oncology specialty residency (PGY2), residents are required to complete a predetermined number of hours in order to gain competency in chemotherapy preparation and sterile technique. Residents will complete this training during orientation and by staffing one afternoon per week, every other week for the first half of the year. Residents will also provide weekend clinical coverage during the residency. Coverage will take place every second or third weekend for the first half of the residency and will alternate between clinical services and pharmacy operations services. For the second half of the residency, coverage will take place every third or fourth weekend and only for clinical services. Residents will receive a monetary stipend for weekend coverage during the second half of the residency year.
Clinical Pharmacogenetics residents will complete similar staffing requirements as the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology residents during the first half of the residency experience.
Medication-Use Safety residents will staff one afternoon per week, every other week and every second or third weekend in pharmacy operation services during the first half of the residency year. For the second half of the year, additional staffing may be required as determined by the Residency Director.
