Funding the Future of Oncology
West Cancer Foundation is committed to education and training of the future of cancer care. We are proud to partner with University of Tennessee Health Science Center and West Cancer Center and Research Institute for the fellows program. By ensuring that oncologists receive the very best training in a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care, we are working together to attract, train, and retain the very best and brightest to Memphis.
The program has a dual focus of patient care in a clinical setting as well as a research in an academic setting. Fellows will spend time honing their skills and preparing for their future including the latest advancements in diagnostic imaging and testing, genetic screening, chemotherapy, radiation and hormone therapies, as well as minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgical techniques for tumor resection or alleviation.
For each fellow being trained today, they will go on to treat 100s if not 1000s of patients throughout their career. They are the future of cancer care.
