The Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center, an integral unit of Baylor University Medical Center, was established in 1976. The multidisciplinary Department of Oncology is the second largest department in the Medical Center and includes the Divisions of Hematology-Oncology, Surgical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Gynecologic Oncology, and Oncologic Pathology.
The Hematology-Oncology Fellowship at Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas is an ACGME accredited 3-year program that accepts two (2) fellows annually and trains internists to become skilled in managing patients with hematologic and neoplastic diseases. Fellows gain experience in providing quality patient care, interpreting critical data, and conducting sound clinical studies.
In addition to scientific and clinical expertise, Baylor Hematology-Oncology Fellows learn more about the humanistic aspects of patient care. Fellows learn to effectively communicate with patients and their families from a variety of cultural backgrounds and gain experience in palliative and end-of-life care. The aim is to develop expertise in both the art and science of medicine.
