The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), located in Seattle, Washington, is part of a dynamic collaboration among three organizations known nationally and internationally for their patient care and research: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington, and Seattle Children's. Over the past 25 years, these institutions have worked together to support their mission of adult and pediatric oncology patient care services, research and education.
The pharmacy intern program at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is a structured, 3-4 year program designed to assure that the intern, upon completion of the intern program in conjunction with an accredited PharmD program, will be able to carry-out all of the functions required to perform distribution as well as supportive clinical duties in an ambulatory oncology setting. The interns will work closely with pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, pharmacy residents, and other healthcare professionals. Each year of the program has designated expectations and goals that build upon the last and correspond with each professional year of pharmacy school. By the end of the internship it is expected but not limited that interns be trained in the following areas sterile compounding, pyxis, investigational drug services. Interns will receive clinical exposure and education that will facilitate the development of the critical thinking skills necessary for contemporary practice.
