Our cancer institute conducts 13 multidisciplinary tumor boards regularly. We offer the full range of advanced chemotherapies and other therapies including alkylating agents, antimetabolites, antitumor antibiotics, immunotherapies, mitotic inhibitors, nitrosoureas, and hormone therapies. Our Division’s Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplant program offers autologous, allogeneic, and syngeneic transplants. We regularly perform some of the most complex stem cell transplants in the country.
With more than 200 ongoing clinical trials, the Josephine Ford Cancer Institute features a large research team focused on bench to translational to clinical research. Our Hematology/Oncology Division is active with the Southwest Oncology Group as well as other government, industry, and private funding sources for research.
The Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship offers four positions annually.

Training provides exposure to a wide range of malignant conditions as well as a diverse patient population. We are one of a few training institutions with Schwartz Rounds, where caregivers discuss psychosocial aspects of caring for oncology patients.
