Pathway of Emphasis in Oncology and Related Health Disparities
The Oncology and Related Health Disparities Pathway is sponsored by the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center and is one of the Pathways of Emphasis within the Scholarly Concentration component of the NextGenMD curriculum.
The Oncology and Related Health Disparities pathway provides a means for medical students interested in the many topics encompassed by contemporary Oncology and related issues pertinent to our catchment area in South Florida to gain broad and in-depth insights in their relevance to the practice of medicine. In particular, students will gain an appreciation for the many ways at the organism, tissue, cell, and molecular levels that cancer manifests itself and an understanding of how tumors are managed from a broad perspective.
The pathway co-directors are Dr. Emmanuel Thomas, Associate Professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and Dr. Gina D’Amato, Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine, Division of Medical Oncology.
