Oncology & Critical Care Fellowship Programs for Advanced Practice Providers

The postgraduate oncology and critical care fellowship for advanced practice nurses and physician assistants is an innovative program at the OSUCCC – James.

The program enables advanced practice nurses and physician assistants to gain first-hand clinical experience and knowledge specific to oncology or critical care. Rotations include critical care, emergency department and disease-specific oncology service lines.

As the only cancer program in the country that features a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center aligned with a nationally-ranked academic medical center and a freestanding cancer hospital on the campus of a large public university, the OSUCCC – James provides an exciting professional learning environment that fosters excellence in patient care, education and research.

Our Relationship-Based Care Model, in combination with evidence-based clinical care is the foundation of our fellowship program. The year-long fellowship includes both clinical and didactic study that covers the continuum of cancer care, from prevention and early detection through active treatment and on to survivorship and/or end-of-life care. During the fellowship program, participants will develop core oncology knowledge that will enable them to practice independently in any oncology setting while also having the opportunity to pursue a disease-specific area of focus.

The program is open to:

  • Recent graduates meeting requirements for entry into the program or;
  • Experienced nurse practitioners or physician assistants interested in oncology but with no clinical oncology background

Fellowship applicants must meet the following criteria by the start of the program in September:

  • Have completed an advanced practice provider master’s program from an accredited university
  • Be recognized as a nurse practitioner or physician assistant by the State Medical or Nursing Board of Ohio
