Welcome to the Cardio-Oncology Fellowship Program at McMaster University. Cardio-oncology is a rapidly growing field focused on the early identification and management of cardiovascular toxicities from cancer therapies, the prevention of cardiovascular disease in cancer survivors, and cardiovascular decision-making in individuals with active cancer. In our program, fellows will gain experience in the clinical management of cardiovascular challenges in many solid organ and hematologic malignancies and they will also have research opportunities at one of the world’s most renowned clinical cardiovascular research institutes.
The successful completion of the fellowship will grant a Fellowship McMaster Certification.
The fellowship program is designed for current residents or recent graduates. Recent graduates are required to submit an application form and comply with McMaster University Postgraduate Medical Education requirements for residents and fellows.
9 month deadline before the start date.
Funding details or opportunities available – to be discussed on a case-by-case basis.
