Fellowship in Geriatrics Oncology

We welcome applications from BE/BC internal medicine and family medicine physicians. Applicants with J1 visa status are also encouraged to apply. At this time, we are unfortunately not able to sponsor H1-B visas.

The Geriatric Oncology Fellowship 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 four-year Geriatric Oncology Fellowship Program has four unique distinguishing features:

  • 1 year of geriatric medicine training and 3 years of hematology oncology training combined into a ABIM approved non-standard fellowship
  • A clinical focus on under-served 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)
  • 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
