Faculty and Fellows
Fellows develop clinical expertise in cancer therapy, acquire knowledge of basic biology of neoplastic diseases and carry out research on problems in Hematology-Oncology. Trainees are introduced to Hematology/Oncology through clinical teaching on the wards and in clinics, as well as clinical and basic science lectures and conferences directed by faculty. Fellows also participate in clinical or laboratory research under faculty supervision.
The major sites for clinical activities are at WVUMedicine - Ruby Memorial Hospital, the largest facility in the WVU Hospitals family, and the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, which houses the Hematology/Oncology outpatient facilities, Radiation Oncology, and two floors of research laboratories. Our Imaging Center provides PET scanning and advanced MRI imaging and our Radiation Oncology unit offers Gamma Knife and other advanced treatment facilities. The Robert C.
