Cancer Specialists of North Florida (CSNF) and Orange Park Medical Center (OPMC) have partnered for a new Fellowship program than began in July 2020. Through exposure to various hematologic and oncological diseases, as well as experience in both in-patient and out-patient settings, our training physicians are learning to treat the whole patient by understanding and applying science and cutting-edge research.
“Fellows in our program are trained and mentored by our outstanding clinicians” says Program Director, Hema Vankayala, MD. “Not only are they well-rounded and passionate about excellent patient care and clinical research, they are also enthusiastic and dedicated teachers,” she continues.
“Our Fellowship Program is designed not only to train fine physicians and compassionate leaders in the field of Hematology/Oncology, but also provides the training and experience necessary to complete all the requirements for board eligibility,” Dr. Vankayala, shares. “It is our mission to give them all of the tools necessary to successfully begin their journey as Hematologist/Oncologists.”
Over 36 months, Fellows in the program will progress through a well-structured curriculum, while being exposed to a wide spectrum of patients and pathologies. In addition to in-clinic training, Fellows are given the opportunity to actively participate in case conferences, multidisciplinary Tumor Boards, Journal Clubs, Institutional CME Curriculum, etc.
