Clinical pharmacy specialists currently practice at Scott & White in a variety of specialty areas include adult medicine, pediatrics, hematology/oncology, drug information, and ambulatory care.

In addition to provision of a wide array of clinically oriented patient care services, the Department of Pharmacy at Scott & White has a significant teaching/research presence within the institution. A major element of the departmental teaching mission involves offering both pharmacy practice and post-doctoral specialty residency training opportunities.

The Scott & White Department of Pharmacy, in conjunction with the UT College of Pharmacy, offers this unique PGY-1 hospital/clinic-based, ASHP-accredited pharmacy practice residency designed to provide broad training and experience in hospital pharmacy practice with an emphasis in the medical care of the hematology/oncology patient. The resident will divide the year between team rotations and “patient care pharmacist” training. The combination of training and practice responsibilities provide a blend of experience for highly motivated individuals with a significant interest in oncology and hospital pharmacy practice who are beginning their professional careers.  The resident’s required research project will be focused on oncology plus the resident will have the opportunity for teaching experiences.
