Ascension Providence Hospital Scholarly Activity

     Research is an integral component of the Hematology and Oncology Fellowship program. Fellows will have the opportunity to do case reports, retrospective studies (chart reviews), experimental studies (clinical trials, animal studies) and prospective studies. These studies can be developed with input from faculty, the Hematology and Oncology Research Coordinator (Dr. Jeff Flynn), Biomedical Research department and fellows.

     Each year, a number of papers from the department are published in peer reviewed journals. Our fellows present numerous oral papers and posters at local, regional, national and international meetings including Ascension Providence Hospital's Research Day, among others. We are extremely proud of these accomplishments.

     A listing of our presentations (oral, video and poster formats), honors and recently published papers is shown below.
