Clinical Training Programs
Fox Chase Cancer Center residencies and fellowships are some of the most sought after in the nation, ranging from radiation and breast oncology to pathology and advanced minimally invasive thoracic surgery. Residents and fellows at Fox Chase train under some of the world’s most renowned and widely-published oncology experts and regularly move on to distinguished careers at academic and community medical centers in the U.S. and around the world.
Fox Chase physicians are enthusiastic teachers and knowledgeable mentors who are routinely recognized in national rankings. Fox Chase was among the first institutions to be designated as a National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center in 1974. Fox Chase researchers have won the highest awards in their fields, including two Nobel Prizes.
Fox Chase was ranked 21st among the nation’s top 50 hospitals for cancer care by U.S. News & World Report and was the first cancer hospital in the nation to earn the prestigious Magnet recognition for nursing excellence–a distinction it has garnered four consecutive times.
At Fox Chase, residents and fellows are active participants in multiple clinical trial groups and are involved in recruitment and follow up of trial subjects. Didactic teaching on topics of current interest occurs at regular multidisciplinary educational conferences.
The 100-bed hospital is devoted entirely to cancer patients; an outpatient center includes a facility for clinical cancer prevention and research, and one of the first and most-respected risk assessment programs in the country. Fox Chase is a member of the Temple University Health System, which means trainees receive an outstanding and diverse educational experience.
