About the Program
The one-year Emergency Medicine Oncology Fellowship will provide training related to hematologic and oncologic emergencies. The program is open to board-certified or board-eligible emergency medicine physicians. Fellows will gain exposure to these patients through emergency department shifts, inpatient rotations and intensive care settings. The goal of the program is to prepare the fellow to lead in the growing field of cancer related emergencies. The training will occur in The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and the emergency department's oncology pod.
This is one of the few fully integrated oncologic emergency department pods in the world. Other rotations will include oncology, hematology, neuro-oncology and palliative medicine.
