Thank you for your interest in the Detroit Medical Center/ Wayne State University Hematology and Oncology Fellowship Program. Our program is fully accredited by Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for a three-year combined fellowship program which, on successful completion, leads to board eligibility for both Hematology and Oncology.
The primary site of fellowship training is Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute which is the only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer center in metro Detroit and one of just 54 such centers in the United States. To receive the prestigious NCI designation, the cancer center must demonstrate excellence in laboratory, clinical and population-based research. The cancer center must also provide early-phase clinical trials and conduct community outreach and educational activities. Karmanos Cancer Institute has more than 800 cancer-specific scientific investigation programs and clinical trials including translational and phase I studies. This provides our patients with access to state-of-the-art cancer treatment and, our fellows, an opportunity to participate in high-quality patient care and research.
Our faculty is committed to upholding the highest standards of clinical training and research mentorship, and cherish the diverse backgrounds our fellows come from. Along with the opportunity to work with our recognized faculty in their subspecialities clinics, fellows have the unique opportunity to build their own patient panel in their longitudinal fellows’ clinic. This allows our fellows the experience of being a practicing hematologist and oncologist from the first year of fellowship. Our goal is to provide our fellows with a strong foundation in clinical education and academic skills so they may be successful as academic and community hematologists/oncologists.
We hope that you will choose to visit us soon and take a closer look at our fellowship program.
