Why Choose Our Program? 

James P. Wilmot Cancer CenterThe Wilmot Cancer Institute is home to The University of Rochester’s Hematology and Oncology Fellowship Program (UR Heme/Onc Program). Serving over 3 million people in nearly 30,000 square miles, Wilmot is the largest Cancer Institute in the region and provides care for nearly 20,000 new cancer cases annually. Wilmot also houses one of upstate New York’s largest blood and marrow transplant programs.

The UR Heme/Onc Program accepts 4 fellows per year to train, learn and work in a close community of renown experts in clinical care, research and education. We provide a unique training environment that provides robust exposure to highly complex cases, high-level multidisciplinary tumor boards, and unparalleled access to research.

Wilmot offers more than 200 clinical trials with new strategies for treatment, management of side effects, diagnosis, and prevention of cancer. At Wilmot, Heme/Onc fellows are strongly supported through their career paths, where career development begins on the first day.

We are committed to mentorship, and fellows have the opportunity to work alongside a multitude of highly experienced and world renown sub-specialists in solid tumor and hematologic malignancies. With over 50 faculty in the Division of Hematology and Oncology, the fellowship program boasts a fellows/faculty ratio of 1:10, underscoring the vast opportunities for clinical expertise, research and professional development.

What Our Fellows are Saying

Jodi Lipof, MD

One of the most attractive things about this program to me is that it has a collegial environment, the fellows get along really well… I really feel like the last two years that I’ve been here, these fellows have become my best friends. I’ve developed mentorships with amazing attendings and these are relationships I’ll carry forever.
