The Hematology/Oncology Residency at Stanford Health Care is a PGY-2 specialty training program that offers extensive hematology and oncology experiences at Stanford Comprehensive Cancer Center, currently ranked top 14 in the nation. One applicant is accepted per year.
The program is designed to transition PGY-1 residency graduates from general practice to specialized practice focused on the care of patients with oncologic and/or hematologic disorders. Residency graduates will be equipped to participate as integral members of interdisciplinary teams, assuming responsibility for pharmaceutical care.
Throughout the program, the resident will gain practical experience in the management in neoplastic diseases as well as cancer-related and cancer treatment-related disorders. Due to the prominent use of investigational drugs in the treatment of cancer, the resident will also gain the knowledge and skills necessary to practice effectively in clinical research environments. They will be able to manage the preparation, distribution, and disposal of hazardous medications in both inpatient and ambulatory settings. Their experience will also include leadership in formulary decision-making for cancer-related medications.
Groomed for practice leadership, the PGY-2 Hematology/Oncology resident will be able to successfully serve health-care organizations with the clinical and practice skills necessary for effective decision-making in the treatment of oncologic and hematologic disorders.
The goal of the PGY-2 Hematology/Oncology Residency Program is to provide a broad experience-based foundation in hematology/oncology, to develop his/her clinical skills, and to prepare for a comprehensive clinical practice in hematology/oncology.
