The John Wayne Cancer Institute at Providence Saint John’s Hospital offers a comprehensive set of highly respected postdoctoral training programs, ranging from its ACGME-approved Complex General Surgical Oncology Fellowship, to its clinically oriented Urologic Oncology and Neurosurgical Fellowship and is rounded off with its lab-based Molecular Oncology fellowships.
At the core of all the training programs is a multi-disciplinary approach to complex cancer care. JWCI fellows receive training in surgical, medical and radiation oncology. All trainees are exposed to basic science research, translational research and clinical trials and many continue a collaborative research career to complement their clinical practice after completion of the fellowship program. There are many resources available to the fellows to allow them to mold their experience to their clinical and research. Many graduates are now nationally respected academic surgeons in their respective fields.
JWCI fellows have participated in groundbreaking research, presented their findings at national and international meetings, and published their work in national journals. They are learning the latest surgical techniques and treatments in the clinic and, most importantly, they treat our patients with dignity and respect. They truly are the next generation of surgical, urologic and neurosurgical oncologist.
