Department and Faculty

Mayo Clinic hematologists/oncologists discussing a case

The Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, has a number of specialty services composed of professionals dedicated to treating cancer and hematologic diseases and improving the quality of life for patients.

The department includes several subspecialty clinics, such as the Breast Clinic and Bone Marrow Transplant Program. The Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology is fully integrated with other medical specialties.

Annually, Mayo Clinic evaluates thousands of patients with diverse solid tumors and hematological disorders at the Arizona campus. In addition, Mayo evaluates a significant number of patients with nonmalignant hematologic disorders, including thrombocytosis, thrombocytopenia, neutropenia and anemia. You play an important role in the care of these patients.

Mayo Clinic actively participates in clinical trials of newer therapies for malignant disorders, including many Phase I and Phase II trials. In addition to intramural protocols, other trials involve cooperative efforts with a variety of groups.

Faculty

In addition to caring for patients in clinical practice, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. You have direct access to the hematology and oncology faculty at Mayo Clinic throughout your training in the Hematology/Oncology Fellowship.

Advisers and mentors

You are assigned a dedicated faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Trainees meet with their advisers periodically throughout the program to review their progress and career goals, and ensure that their educational needs are being met. Your adviser also serves as a contact point for introducing you and your family to the Phoenix area and the Mayo Clinic system.

Visiting professors

Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during lectures, participate in hospital rounds and have informal discussions with trainees. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these educational opportunities.
