The Department of Medical Oncology offers a three year fellowship for internists who have completed an approved residency program. The fellowship combines the resources of Temple University Hospital and Fox Chase Cancer Center. This combined hematology/oncology fellowship is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

At FCCC, the fellows are exposed to the specialized pathology of tumors and cancer related conditions. The primary experience of the fellows is in the hands-on day-to-day dealing with surgical material, including institutional consultation cases. Ample time for scholarly activities is facilitated by two full time pathologists' assistants who handle gross room activities including frozen section preparation.
The fellowship has been in existence since 1986 and was certified by the Society of Surgical Oncology in 1991. Approximately 70 per cent of graduates now occupy academic positions. Each year three fellows are accepted through the SSO Matching Program for a two-year program with an option to extend one or two additional years in research upon completion.
