practice opportunities
Practice Opportunities
  • Academics
    • Mostly disease focused
      • For example: Lung, GI, GU, Breast, Head and Neck, Endocrine, lymphoma, leukemia, myeloma focused
      • Some portion of protected time to conduct laboratory or clinical research or both
    • Somewhat less lucrative than private practice
    • Benefits
      • disease focus
      • opportunity to do research
      • Interact with housestaff, fellows – can participate in education
      • Share call with faculty, fellows, nurse practitioners
practice opportunities1
Practice Opportunities
  • Private practice
    • Usually all malignancies
      • Some practices do permit practitioners with some disease focus
      • Do usually have a few practitioners who see benign hematology, although not all members of the practice may be hematology certified
    • Fairly Lucrative
    • Busy call and clinic schedule – frequent consults, cover own inpatients and consults, clinic 3-5 days/week
    • Benefits
      • Busy practice, opportunity to see many different malignancies
      • Limited or no research, although many cancer centers participate in national pharmaceutical or co-operative group trials
      • Some educational opportunities
professional organizations
Professional Organizations
  • American Society of Hematology
    • Focuses on benign and malignant hematology
    • Clinical and bench research
  • American Society of Clinical Oncology
    • Focuses primarily on solid tumors, although some representation of malignant hematology
    • Clinical and bench research
  • Co-operative Groups
    • CALGB, ECOG, SWOG – groups that conduct clinical trials at multiple sites
