A message from the program director:

Welcome!

On behalf of the faculty and staff participating in the Allegheny Health Network Medical Education Consortium’s Hematology and Oncology
Fellowship Program, thank you for your interest in our program!

The Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute located in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh (the city of bridges) in Western Pennsylvania. The city is located at the confluence of the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio rivers and in 2015 was listed in the 11 most livable cities in the world. It is home to the modern Andy Warhol museum, Carnegie Museum of Art, The Phipps Conservatory and Botanical gardens and the Carnegie Museum of Science. For the sports fans, we are home to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Penguins, Pirates and Riverhounds.

The goal of our fellowship program is to develop the fellow’s knowledge base, attitude and skills that are needed to provide high quality state-of-the-art care to patients with hematological and oncological disease. Our faculty provides training that will allow trainees to become independent and effective consultants. We provide a wealth of experience in both an academic and community setting exposing our trainees to diverse pathologies that will provide an enriched clinical experience. We aim to inculcate traits that will foster a sense of inquiry and lifelong learning while providing fellows with a nurturing environment, camaraderie and mentorship to enhance their overall training experience.

We look forward to reviewing your applications!

Highlights:

  • Hematology oncology training is about combining the best inpatient and outpatient experiences for fellows coupled with clinical research opportunities. At AHN we strive to achieve this balance. 
  • Our fellows in their first year spend a majority of their time completing their inpatient training in both solid tumor oncology and hematology and cellular therapy.
  • Having a strong transplant program allows our fellows to gain experience in taking care of acute malignant hematology along with complex transplant patients and getting CAR-T therapy while also being adept at procedures (bone marrow biopsies, skin biopsies and interpretation of peripheral blood smears).
  • The second year has a balance of some inpatient and outpatient rotations with increasing responsibilities in education and research along with scheduled outpatient rotations in community oncology practices to help our fellows gain experience of working in those settings in addition to our academic center.
  • The final year is all outpatient and research where the fellows have the
    flexibility to structure their outpatient clinics to best fit their career goals after
