The hematology/oncology fellowship program at Penn is designed to provide our trainees with the tools they need to pursue lifelong careers characterized by excellence, innovation and commitment. It is the aim of the division to ensure those who complete our training become leaders in the field of hematology/oncology, whether they pursue careers in clinical, population science or bench research.
Each and every member of the division is dedicated to the education and career development of its fellows. Alison Wakoff Loren, MD, MS, has been the fellowship program director since 2007. Her clinical interests include the care of patients with hematologic malignancies and those receiving hematopoietic cell transplants, and her research interests include long-term complications of allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation, including management of graft-vs-host disease, relapse, and survivorship.
Penn fellows have the opportunity to train in a broad array of basic science laboratories across a diverse and groundbreaking campus that includes departments and schools throughout the University of Pennsylvania, as well as the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, the Abramson Cancer Center and Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute and the Wistar Institute.
Master's Degree Programs
Penn offers four master's degree programs in which fellows may participate:
- Master of Science in Clinical Epidemiology (MSCE). Offered through the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CCEB), provides training in epidemiology, clinical trials, genetics or bioethics.
- Master of Science in Translational Research (MTR). Offered through the Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics (ITMAT), trains fellows in developmental therapeutics.
- Master of Science in Health Policy Research (MSHPR). Provides training in outcomes research, health disparities and public policy alongside trainees of the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program.
- Master of Public Health (MPH). Offered through the Master of Public Health Program at the University of Pennsylvania.
The Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute, is home to a large proportion of the cancer research on campus. Research programs in benign hematology can be accessed through the Penn Comprehensive Hemophilia and Thrombosis Research Program and by reviewing the home pages of individual faculty members.
