Match Day celebration for Bayhealth’s Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship Program

Bayhealth Match Day Celebration for Delaware’s First Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship Program

Tuesday, December 12, 2023 | Cancer Care
Bayhealth held a Match Day celebration on Dec. 1 for the first class of fellows in its new Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship Program. With the launch of this fellowship program—the first of its kind in Delaware—two talented fellows will join Bayhealth in July to complete specialized training with hematologists and medical oncologists at the Bayhealth Cancer Centers, Kent and Sussex Campuses. A medical fellow is physician who has finished residency and gains advanced training under experts in a specific sub-specialty of medicine.

Back in 2020 Bayhealth became the first teaching hospital in central and southern Delaware and has continued to expand on its graduate medical education (GME) programs ever since. These GME programs enable physicians to hone their specialty expertise while providing patient care that benefits our communities. Because Bayhealth’s hematology and medical oncology fellows will care for patients alongside seasoned specialists as part of their training, this program is expanding access to the highest-quality, research-based cancer care for Delawareans.

“We are proud to educate the next generation of physicians to deliver the best cancer care in our country and region,” said Bayhealth Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship Program Director Iftekhar Khan, MD. “This fellowship program is another milestone in our ability to apply knowledge of the latest clinical research in cancers and blood diseases to provide state-of-the-art prevention and treatment to our community members.”

Bayhealth welcomes the two fellows joining their Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship Program:

Hyeon Jeong “H.J.” Park, DO
Medical School: Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine
Residency: ChristianaCare Internal Medicine Residency, Newark, Delaware

Sumukh Arun Kumar, MD
