The Cooper Medical School of Rowan University Hematology and Oncology Fellowship is an ACGME-accredited three-year comprehensive fellowship program that offers three positions per year.
Cooper University Health Care is the leading academic medical center and only Level 1 Trauma Center in southern New Jersey. It is the only hospital in southern New Jersey to have a dedicated 30-bed inpatient oncology unit. The medical center serves the needs of a broad patient population consisting of primary, secondary, and tertiary medical care. As of 2013, our cancer center partnered with MD Anderson in Houston, TX forming the MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper.
The Hematology/Medical Oncology Fellowship Program services a large and diverse patient population, which allows fellows to gain experience in oncological, benign, and malignant hematological diseases in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. Daily interaction with other departments such as pathology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology, palliative care, pulmonary, gastroenterology, urology, and interventional radiology ensures a multidisciplinary approach to patient care which enhances the clinical training experience and prepares fellows for clinical and/or academic practice in the future.
The program offers teaching in the management of malignant and nonmalignant hematologic disorders and solid tumors; experience in molecular biology, coagulation, blood bank, and laboratory medicine; and participation in MD Anderson, NRG, pharmaceutical, and basic science protocols.
Our fellows spend their time between Cooper University Hospital’s main campus inpatient services and our two major outpatient centers– one in Camden, NJ, and the other in the suburban area of Voorhees, NJ.
