Our division is located at Ellis Fischel Cancer Center and is comprised of clinicians and researchers who strive to provide high quality patient care as well as offer state-of-the-art treatment. Emphasis is placed on providing opportunities for patients to participate in clinical trials and training future physicians to provide high quality cancer care.
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 have the opportunity to further the education of students, house staff and fellows in an environment dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Our fellowship program is an essential part of the Cancer Center and the Health Sciences Center.
Our training program exposes fellows to outpatient care and consultation, as well as inpatient care of patients with cancer and blood disorders. Fellows are able to observe patients with a wide variety of neoplastic and hematologic diseases at Ellis Fischel Cancer Center, and have the opportunity to participate in an active clinical research program. Fellows also rotate on the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit at St. Louis University. Interested fellows are also encouraged to pursue basic science research.
