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!
The fellows are responsible for the Journal Clubs, Multidisciplinary Tumor Board Conferences, Landmark articles and Morbidity and Mortality conference along with one core lecture in their 2nd and 3rd year. Majority of the core
lectures are presented by faculty experts in that particular disease site.
The fellows have board review once a week precepted by a faculty member with an expertise in the topic being discussed.
Wellness, team-building and fun activities are arranged to foster camaraderie. Picnics in the park, BBQ party at the program director’s house, monthly birthday celebrations and the end of year graduation party are some examples.
