The first year of your hematology and medical oncology fellowship will focus on outpatient care for hematology and oncology patients. You’ll also take part in five half-day clinics, chosen so you have exposure to breast, gastrointestinal, thoracic, genitourinary and hematologic oncology, as well as benign hematologic disorders.
Your first year will also include training in inpatient consultative hematology. During this rotation, you’ll broaden your experience through exposure to the breadth of benign and malignant hematologic conditions.
In your second and third year, you’ll train in:
- Inpatient hematology
- Bone marrow transplant and the oncology consult service
- Radiation oncology
Our inpatient hematology rotation focuses on the evaluation and treatment of acute leukemia and heme malignancy, as well as stem cell transplant. You’ll also spend three months at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, a rotation that includes inpatient consultative services and continuity clinics. Geisinger Wyoming Valley is home to the Henry Cancer Center, a newly renovated 92,000-square-foot, four-story, state-of-the-art facility.
Geisinger is research-focused, and you’ll conduct hypothesis-driven, mentored research as part of your hematology and medical oncology fellowship.
You’ll complete most of your rotations at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville and spend three consecutive months in years two and three at Geisinger Wyoming Valley in Wilkes-Barre, a one-hour drive from Danville. There, you’ll have the chance to train with different faculty in a community setting and see a different array of disease acuity and pathology. We’ll pay for your housing during these rotations.
