In This Section


The Section of Hematology and Medical Oncology at Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University cares for patients with a wide range of blood and cancer disorders. There are currently nine faculty within the section who specialize in areas of hemostasis and thrombosis, non-malignant hematology, blood cancers, breast cancer, gastrointestinal cancers, genitourinary cancers and thoracic cancers.  Our physicians and staff see patients at the Fox Chase Cancer Center at Temple University Hospital, a state-of-the-art facility that provides a full range of chemotherapy, infusion services, apheresis services, as well as access to on-site surgical oncology, radiation oncology, gynecologic oncology and support care. Our medical oncologists are faculty members of the Fox Chase Cancer Center. In addition, we are part of the Bloodless Care program at Temple University Hospital which is a comprehensive program designed to help patients avoid blood product transfusions for religious or other reasons.  Members of our section have been recognized as Top Doctors in the Philadelphia Magazine and by the Best Doctors organization.

The faculty is committed to excellence in patient care as well as teaching and research.

We are dedicated to the training of the next generation of physicians. We serve as faculty for clinical fellows in the combined Temple-Fox Chase Hematology/Oncology Fellowship and are extensively involved in the teaching of medical students and medical residents. Research within the section spans from bench to translational and clinical studies in hemostasis and thrombosis within the Sol Sherry Thrombosis Research Center. Our medical oncologists carry out translational and clinical research as well as provide access for patients to many Fox Chase Cancer Center clinical trials at our Temple University Hospital site.
