The PGY2 Oncology Pharmacy Residency conducted by TTUHSC Jerry H. Hodge School of Pharmacy, Dallas, Texas is accredited by ASHP.


PGY2 pharmacy residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in specialized areas of practice. 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 or other advanced practice settings. Residents who successfully complete an accredited PGY2 pharmacy residency are prepared for advanced patient care, academic, or other specialized positions, along with board certification, if available.


The PGY2 specialty residency in Oncology Pharmacy Practice at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy Dallas/Ft. Worth Regional Campus, in conjunction with UT Southwestern Medical Center, is designed to produce practitioners who exhibit excellence in the pharmaceutical care of hematology/oncology patients. An oncology clinical specialist should possess a mastery of clinical skills needed to practice in a wide range of patient care settings and a solid knowledge base in oncology pharmacotherapy.

The residency provides the environment necessary to obtain the knowledge and skills needed to care for patients with a wide range of disease states. Core disease state experiences within this residency include lung, breast, prostate, colorectal cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, and bone marrow transplant among other malignancies. The resident may choose electives based on their career goals. In addition to patient care responsibilities, the resident will be involved in teaching activities, including didactic teaching, problem-based learning facilitation and precepting experiential clerkship students, as well as a residency research project. The program will foster the development of an independent and versatile practitioner and is designed to produce well rounded, independent professionals through interrelated experiences in teaching, research, and professional activities.
