Director's Welcome

Scott Soefje, Pharm.D.

If your interests lie in quality residency training, breakthrough biomedical research and a world-class interdisciplinary team approach to medicine, you will find the PGY-2 Pharmacy Residency in Oncology at Mayo Clinic Hospital — Rochester to be a highly rewarding professional and personal experience.

Our oncology pharmacists are passionate about what we do, from compassionate direct patient care to focused training of our residents and students. The practice of medicine in hematology and oncology is rapidly evolving. New therapies are discovered and implemented at a faster pace than any other field of medicine. Mayo Clinic is at the forefront of cancer research, enabling you to participate in the care of patients enrolled in clinical trials as well as those receiving an evidence-based, standard-of-care approach.

The preceptors for the oncology residency are dedicated to providing you with the training and experience necessary to become an exemplary pharmacist in hematology and oncology. Our residency excels in the ability to tailor the program to your needs and desires — the clinical, research and educational resources you will enjoy are unparalleled.

Your knowledge base and pharmacotherapy skills will mature and be refined through participation in interdisciplinary patient care and a rigorous board-certified oncology pharmacist curriculum. We also work with you to improve your strengths and weaknesses, whether you need enhanced writing, communication, management or teaching skills.

If an atmosphere that promotes innovation and excellence appeals to you, I encourage you to explore our website, contact me with questions, and thoughtfully consider advancing your training and career through our PGY-2 oncology residency.
