Program Structure

The Carolinas Medical Center PGY2 Pharmacy Residency in Oncology is a 12-month intensive learning program. Residents will spend the majority of the year in one-month rotations focused on both inpatient and outpatient oncology and hematology. Rotations are primarily located within the Carolinas Medical Center and Levine Cancer Institute – Morehead buildings but specific experiences may also involve traveling to other Levine Cancer Institute locations. Elective opportunities exist to customize to a resident’s individual interests and adjustments can be made to allow more time for experiences in preferred areas.

Additional experiences will include the formation and completion of a residency research project and a medication use evaluation. The resident will also complete a drug monograph or formulary review, drug information questions, in-services to other healthcare practitioners, and have the opportunity to co-precept pharmacy students and residents.


In addition to the full benefits of an Atrium Health employee, residents will have medical and dental coverage premiums paid by the employer. Ten paid days off are available for vacation or sick time and five additional days for professional interviews if needed. A travel allowance will be provided to attend the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting, North Carolina Oncology Pharmacist (NCOP) meeting, and the Hematology/Oncology Pharmacy Association (HOPA) annual conference. The resident is provided with office space containing an individual double monitor desktop computer, phone, pager, storage/filing space as well as a shared printer. In addition, the resident receives remote access to the hospital network, comprehensive drug information resources, three lab coats, a laptop, a daily meal allowance, and free parking.
