Mission of the Lankenau Medical Center Hematology/Medical Oncology
The mission of the Lankenau Medical Center Hematology/Medical Oncology
Fellowship Program, an Internal Medicine subspecialty education program,
is to provide fellows with a supervised training experience at the level
required for the fellows to acquire competency as a specialist in the
combined fields of Hematology and Medical Oncology.
Our mission will be accomplished through a clinical competency based
curriculum, which shall meet ACGME and RRC requirements; the fellows
shall acquire clinical competencies in the following areas:
Medical Knowledge: Acquire clinical and
didactic experience in observation and management of patients
with a wide range of neoplastic and blood disorders.
Patient Care: Assume continuing responsibility
for managing the care of acutely and chronically ill patients in
order to observe the evolution of blood diseases, history of
cancer and benefits and adverse effects of therapy.
Communication Skills: Communicate effectively
and compassionately with patients and families when facing
life-threatening or terminal illness.
Practice-Based Learning: Develop commitment to
research, scholarly activities and self-assessment in order to
implement practice-based improvement initiatives.
System-Based Practice: Develop an understanding
of different types of medical practice and delivery systems and
how the fellow's practice affects, and is impacted by other
health care professionals, organizations, financial payors and
society. Participate in multi-disciplinary treatment team
planning for patients and families.
Professionalism and Humanistic Patient Care:
Demonstrate positive humanistic qualities and professional
behavior, always placing the patient's welfare first as the
primary area of concern.
We believe that our values set the foundation for the practice of
Hematology and Medical Oncology and we subscribe to values of quality,
compassion, integrity, professionalism and treatment of all persons with
dignity and respect. Our mission will be accomplished in an ethical and
professional environment in which educational curriculum requirements
and scholarly activity will be achieved.
