APP Adult Hematology and Oncology Fellowship

The Medical College Physician’s APP Adult Hematology and Oncology Fellowship is an innovative 12-month training program that teaches APP fellows to become skilled nurse practitioners and physician assistants in multidisciplinary, collaborative, and evidence-based management of highly complex patients through clinical and didactic experiences and professional mentorship. This program aims to attract newly graduated NP and PA professionals, or experienced APPs seeking to support and guide their development of proficient clinical decision making and their application of specialized skills. APP Fellows will have core rotations as well as elective choices to provide a personalized program experience. One fellow will be accepted to the program per year, with potential to increase this number as success of the program expands.
