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.
