Education & Training – Fellowships
Fellowship in Geriatric Oncology
The Geriatrics/Oncology Training Program builds on the strengths of the Sections of Hematology/Oncology and Geriatrics, and Boston Medical Center's longstanding mission of caring for the underserved. Our graduates serve as role models for future generations of research and clinical oncologists, advancing knowledge regarding cancer prevention and clinical care of ethnically and linguistically diverse elderly cancer patients.
The three-year Geriatrics/Oncology Training Program has three unique distinguishing features:
- a clinical focus on underserved populations, supported by Geriatrics and Oncology clinical sites and didactic curricula;
- a comprehensive, mentored research training experience with two tracks—a clinical epidemiology, translational research, clinical and health services research track leading to an MSc in Epidemiology or MA in Clinical Investigation (Research Track I) and a basic research track (Research Track II); and
- leadership training including courses in teaching, evidence-based medicine, and health systems management. The fellowship will draw on the talents of an experienced and nationally known faculty to enhance this already robust teaching environment.
