Preparing the Next Generation of Clinical Pharmacists

Most undergraduate pharmacy education involves didactic learning, with little patient contact until late in the process, says Joel LaJeunesse, vice president for the Division of Pharmacy. But, at MD Anderson, pharmacy residents get plenty of direct patient contact through the Pharmacy Graduate Year 2 (PGY2) program. PGY2 allows those who've completed a one-year residency in pharmacy to specialize in one of two areas for another year. Six residents specialize in oncology; two focus on critical care. Recruited through a national match program, residents are given a stipend, but earn less than a practicing pharmacist would.
