Cancer Institute – Professional Education

Cancer Institute – Professional Education

We offer a three-year combined Hematology/Oncology Fellowship, which will prepare the trainee for obtaining board certification in both disciplines.

Intellect and discovery characterize growth at the Penn State Cancer Institute. We continue to emphasize our state-of-the-art interdisciplinary patient care, in which medical, surgical and radiation oncologists jointly determine the best therapeutic course for each patient. We also focus our attention on becoming designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Among other strengths, our focus when applying for NCI designation will be underlined by the Cancer Institute's emphasis on rural, underserved populations. Many of these efforts are conducted through the Appalachian Cancer Network by volunteers throughout Pennsylvania who provide education and screening services, as well as behavioral interventions, to reduce cancer risk. Our free-standing facility, which opened June 2009, was designed to reinforce our concept of a community of individuals devoted to providing comprehensive cancer care and finding a cure for cancer.

Penn State Cancer Institute offers many opportunities for professional education, including fellowships and clerkships. The hematology/oncology fellowship program is a three-year combined program designed to prepare trainees for board certification in both disciplines. Three fellowship positions are available for each year of fellowship.

There is also a Hematology track within the hematology/oncology fellowship program, which is a two year track intended to equip trainees to address complex problems in blood diseases.
