    The University of Mississippi has separate, but cooperative Hematology and Oncology divisions. The division of Oncology faculty consists of nine full-time oncologists and four practicing oncologists from the community. The division of Hematology has six full-time MD faculty and one full-time PhD research faculty.


    Applicants eligible for appointment to the Hematology/Oncology Training Program in this institution shall be those individuals who have satisfactorily completed a three-year training program in General Internal Medicine and have been declared eligible for the examination leading to certification. In addition, each candidate must satisfy all criteria established by UMMC for such programs, including an unrestricted license to practice Medicine in the state of Mississippi.


    The selection of candidates will be made after receiving a satisfactorily completed application through ERAS for each position, including written letters of recommendation from at least 2 individuals who are familiar with the previous learning environments of the applicant. Each application will be reviewed and selected individuals will be invited for a personal interview with the faculty of the divisions. Candidates will be offered positions based on their preparedness, perceived ability, aptitude, academic credentials, communications skills, and personal qualities such as motivation and integrity. Selection of appointees is made without regard to sex, race, age, religion, color, national origin, disability or veteran status.
