Fellowship in Adult Hematology & Medical Oncology at Northwell Health
The longstanding independent fellowship training programs in hematology and medical oncology at both North Shore University Hospital and Long Island Jewish Medical Center were merged in 2010 as the core internal medicine programs were joined as one. North Shore and LIJ are both tertiary care teaching facilities and two of the cornerstones of Northwell Health. With a service area encompassing Long Island and metropolitan New York City, Northwell Health has become the nation's second-largest nonprofit, secular healthcare system and one of the country's largest clinically integrated healthcare networks. Embedded in Northwell Health is the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine at Hofstra University.
The goal of the Northwell Health Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship Program is to develop physicians who will provide excellent and compassionate cancer care. We aspire to educate and train clinical hematologist/oncologists who will utilize the professional, cognitive, and the technical skills necessary to provide their patients with the highest quality of care.
Northwell Health’s Hematology and Medical Oncology Program has participated for several decades in hundreds of National Cancer Institute-sponsored clinical trials and has been identified as the repository of state-of-the-art clinical research protocols for both treatment and cancer control on Long Island. The health system is identified as one of the major diagnostic and treatment centers for patients with malignant disease residing in the New York metropolitan area.
The Northwell Health Cancer Institute houses our cancer services, which include pain and palliative care programs, nutrition counseling, genetic counseling, social work and support services, a patient education center, and a nationally recognized clinical trials program. The Cancer Institute is part of the Center for Advanced Medicine and includes the Division of Medical Oncology/Hematology, Surgical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Neuro-Oncology among other disciplines and services.
