Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Prgram

Howard Gross, M.D., Director

The fellowship program in the Division of Hematology and Oncology is fully accredited and offers broad training in clinical hematology and medical oncology. The primary goal of the fellowship program is to provide trainees with in-depth clinical experience and a basic foundation in medical science and research methodology.

The program is sponsored by the Department of Internal Medicine at Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine. Participating hospitals are Good Samaritan Hospital (GSH), Miami Valley Hospital (MVH) and the Dayton Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC). Other facilities utilized for training include the Community Blood Center of Dayton and the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center — James Cancer Hospital (OSU) for clinical experience in stem cell transplantation.

The program accepts two fellowship candidates per year. Trainees who complete the three-year program should satisfy all requirements for eligibility for the American Board of Internal Medicine certifying examinations in both hematology and medical oncology. 

Candidates must have U.S. citizenship or permanent residency.  All applications must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Interviews are scheduled by invitation in September or October. Fellowship positions are filled through the match (NRMP).
