PHILADELPHIA (June 24, 2016) — Philip A. Pancari, MD, has joined the department of hematology/oncology at Fox Chase Cancer Center, providing additional physician support for the Fox Chase Cancer Center–Temple University Hospital Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) Program.

“We’re excited to welcome Dr. Pancari into the BMT program. His experience and wealth of knowledge in the field of hematology will be an asset to our growing group of top-notch physicians,” said Henry C. Fung, MD, FRCPE, vice chair of hematology at Fox Chase and director of the Fox Chase–Temple University Hospital BMT Program.

Pancari is a licensed, board-certified physician. He earned his undergraduate degree in chemistry at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey. After earning his medical degree at Boston University School of Medicine, Pancari worked as an internal medicine intern, and later as a resident at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. In 2013, he became a hematology/oncology fellow at Temple University and Fox Chase Cancer Center.

“Having worked at Fox Chase for the past three years as a hematology/oncology fellow, I’ve enjoyed treating patients using the Center’s multidisciplinary approach,” Pancari said. “It’s been beneficial to me as a physician to complete a fellowship in this type of team environment, and I think it’s also been beneficial to patients. I’m honored to continue my work in the Temple Health System.”
