Pharmaceutical Department Residency Programs

Oncology - Pediatrics


St Jude Children’s Research Hospital offers a 12-month ASHP-accredited specialized (PGY2) Residency in Oncology with a pediatric focus.

This residency experience includes training in general hematology/oncology, bone marrow transplantation (BMT), infectious diseases and ambulatory care. Residents are provided training in applied pharmacokinetics, pharmacogenomics, nutrition support and advanced training in clinical therapeutics of the pediatric cancer patient.


Along with direct patient care responsibilities, the resident will have the opportunity to precept Doctor of Pharmacy students, provide didactic lectures, in-services, and journal clubs, and participate in various committee meetings within the institution, as well as conduct collaborative clinical research. To develop research skills, residents will also be required to participate in an independent research activity, which is expected to result in submission of a publishable manuscript. They are also required to present their research findings at a national pharmacy or scientific organizational meeting.


Longitudinal Experiences

Residents will be assigned various longitudinal projects throughout the residency year.  Residents are expected to complete a major research project under the direction of the residency program director and assigned research team. Other longitudinal projects include formal presentations (patient presentations, research proposal and journal club presentation), lecture at the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy, ACPE-accredited presentations, a pharmacy operations and drug distribution systems project, formulary review, among others. Additional longitudinal experiences are listed below.
