In spite of significant advances in treatment, cancer remains the second leading cause of death in the United States. Training in oncology and hematology is therefore essential to medical students, as well as house staff in many disciplines. As one of the few academic medical centers with a free-standing cancer hospital, we also have the opportunity to further the education of students, housestaff, and fellows in an environment dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. The fellowship program is an essential part of the Cancer Center and the Health Sciences Center.
The training program exposes fellows to outpatient care, consultation, as well as inpatient care of patients with cancer and blood disorders. Fellows also rotate on the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. Fellows at Ellis Fischel Cancer Center are able to observe patients with a wide variety of neoplastic and hematologic diseases, and have the opportunity to participate in an active clinical research program. Interested fellows may also pursue basic science research.
For consideration for a fellowship in hematology and medical oncology, please apply through ERAS.
We will be accepting applications through ERAS beginning July 1, 2014 ending in August 15, 2014. Any applications or components of an application (including letters of recommendation, transcripts, test scores, etc.) not received in full by our cutoff date, will not be considered. Completion of a three year US residency and three letters of recommendation are required. We also participate in the Match.
