Clinician Education

  • Opportunities for Our Referring Physicians

    Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is a principal teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. Through continuing medical education (CME) and continuing educational unit (CEU) courses, we share advances in cancer research and treatment with the health care community. We also provide educational programs for nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, administrators, and others involved in cancer care and research.

    team of clinicians

    Clinical courses are offered in conjunction with Harvard Medical School, which is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). Harvard Medical School designates these educational activities as credit towards the AMA Physician's Recognition Award. Other courses are offered directly by Dana-Farber or by Partners HealthCare.

    HSCT/HM Grand Rounds

    The HSCT program's CME-accredited weekly Grand Round lectures cover a broad range of timely and clinically important topics related to bone marrow transplantation. These are available to physicians, mid-level practitioners, and nurses. Speakers are drawn from Dana-Farber, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and other regional and national institutions. The Grand Rounds are also webcast to ensure that anyone interested is able to view the presentations.

    To attend or learn more about Grand Rounds, email bmtgrandrounds@dfci.harvard.edu.

    Observerships

    As a leading provider of cancer care and research, we attract researchers and clinicians who seek opportunities to learn from us. We offer observerships for physicians, mid-level practitioners, and nurses to shadow clinicians in the Hematologic Malignancies department. While observerships are overseen organizationally by Dana-Farber, curricula and scheduling are managed directly by each department.

    For HM and stem cell transplant observerships, please email HMobserverships@dfci.harvard.edu.

    HSCT Open House for Clinicians

    The DF/BWCC HSCT program offers an annual open house to discuss current trends in stem cell transplant and provide information about how our program operates. The open house offers referring and community clinicians a unique opportunity to learn from DF/BWCC clinicians and connect with others involved in the care of stem cell patients, with a particular focus on shared care. This program offers both CME and CEU credits and is provided at no charge to participants.
