Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program

"High Standards, No Excuses"

Dr. Paul Walker
Paul R. Walker, MD FACP
Director of Fellowship Program
Associate Professor of Medicine
Director of Thoracic Oncology

The cancer epidemic continues on. Every patient wants one thing: to know that everything that can be done, has been done, is being done, and will always be done in their care. The advances in cancer medicine are incredibly exciting and incredibly rapid. That is what we teach. That is what our fellows learn. High Standards; No Excuses is what we expect.

We are a three year combined Hematology/Oncology Fellowship with four new fellows per year. Our clinics are in the Leo Jenkins Cancer Center. Our inpatient hematology and solid tumor services are on a dedicated Oncology unit at Vidant Medical Center. We also have a hospital wide Hematology and Oncology consulting service.

Our fellows rotate through each of the inpatient services and each of our outpatient sub-specialty Thoracic, Breast/Gynecologic, GI/GU/Melanoma/Sarcoma, and Malignant/Benign Hematology clinics every year under the direction of our sub-specialty focused faculty. Inpatient rotation time is front loaded to the first year to provide a focus on the needed deeper learning and experience to be gained in becoming an Oncologist during the second and third years of training. Allogeneic stem cell transplant training is at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Each fellow has over six months of focused research time.
