Fellowship Program at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center Trains Hematologists/Oncologists
One of the many missions of Feist-Weiller Cancer Center is to train specialists in cancer care. The Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program is one of the largest in the southeast United States with 16 Fellows. It is a three-year post-MD training program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
Fellows are internists who pursue advanced specialty training. After completing the three-year hematology/oncology Fellowship, many remain in the area or choose to practice elsewhere. Approximately one-fifth of the practicing hematologists and oncologists in Louisiana trained in the Shreveport program. Former Feist-Weiller Cancer Center Fellows are practicing in Shreveport, Bossier City, Monroe, Lafayette, Alexandria, Baton Rouge, Leesville and Mamou.
Feist-Weiller Cancer Center participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and The National Match Registry Program (NMRP).
