Nothing puts fear into the heart of pharmacy students like the subject of Oncology. It’s easy to understand why. In most programs, students have a 2 - 5 week module where they go through the entirety of what is arguably the most complex subject in medicine.
Luckily, tl;dr pharmacy has your back. There are plenty of good reasons why you need to level up your chemo game:
- It's on the NAPLEX
- It's where the majority of pharmaceutical research dollars are going
- Most practitioners avoid it like the plague, so you can give yourself a useful (read: profitable) skill set
- Because you're interested in your profession and you like learning more about it (you ARE interested in your profession, right?)
As part of a series on topics in oncology, today we’ll be focusing on chemo-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). Alright, buckle up and get ready.
