Oncology Fellowship
Program Director ia Simeon Jaggernauth, D.O.

Program Description:

This is a two-year sub-specialty training program designed to develop the analytical and procedural skills required to excel as a clinical medical oncologist. This program will serve as a foundation for advanced training in a medical oncology subspecialty.

The program will accept one fellow every year and each will train for a minimum of two years. Fellows are required to demonstrate a high level of professionalism with respect to the educational process and patient care. The training program includes an extensive clinical experience; by the end of the fellowship, they will have seen virtually every tumor type, oncological problem, as well as benign and malignant hematological disorders. The program includes inpatient and outpatient care and consultation; formal teaching rounds are held daily at the primary hospital. An emphasis is placed on a comprehensive knowledge of malignancy related physiology and pathophysiology. Clinical aspects of medical oncology include the management of early stage and the combined modality approach for advanced malignancies. Detailed attention is devoted to the conceptual and procedural aspects of the administration of adjuvant, neoadjuvant & palliative chemotherapy. Fellows attend continuity clinics weekly during their training at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America where a well rounded experience exists in multimodality training. Elective rotations are available in radiation, surgical, gastrointestinal, and pulmonary oncology. Multiple additional subspecialty rotations are available to provide a broad training experience in the management of patients with advanced and rare malignancies.

Fellows are required to alternate between the inpatient consultation service and the ambulatory clinic service rotations.
