Cancer Institute congratulates newest graduates of WVU’s Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program

West Virginia University’s Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program is an intense, three-year experience that prepares its graduates by developing their clinical expertise in cancer therapy, guides them in acquiring the knowledge of basic biology of neoplastic diseases and teaches them to solve problems through research 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.. Only a handful of students enter the program each year.

  • Cancer Institute receives gift bags for patients

    Amy Broadwater of Waynesburg, Pennsylvania is hoping to brighten the spirits of patients at the WVU Cancer Institute Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center this holiday season. A Stella & Dot independent stylist, Broadwater asked her customers and friends to purchase bags from her company’s business as part of a breast cancer awareness campaign. She ended up with 22 bags, which she stuffed with socks, candy and notebooks using her commission from the bag sales to pay for the items, then donated the bags to the Cancer Center to give to patients. “My hope is that the gift bags will help ease the burden that patients may be experiencing and help them realize that others are thinking about them,” Broadwater said.
