Supported by TEVA Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.
The 2012 application cycle is now closed.
The ASHP Foundation’s Oncology Patient Care Traineeship is a 4-month educational experience during which pharmacists will be trained to develop and maintain specialized services for the management of patients with cancer. Trainees will receive intensive distance and experiential training that prepares them to participate on interdisciplinary patient care teams as the health professional who is responsible and accountable for patients' medication-related outcomes.
The ASHP Foundation's Oncology Patient Care Traineeship Program was developed to train pharmacists to practice in the oncology setting where they have the ability to positively impact and improve medication outcomes. The program includes a distance education component, ten (10) contiguous days of experiential training, and completion of post-training activities. The clinical skills developed through the traineeship, along with the long-term guidance offered by the traineeship preceptor, will position the trainee to develop oncology pharmacy services at his/her institution.
