Kim Dittus, MD

The Hematology/Oncology faculty are key members of the educational team at the University of Vermont College of Medicine and the University of Vermont Medical Center. Our faculty educate providers at all levels of training.

Medical Students and Residents

Hematology/Oncology faculty members provide elective rotations in outpatient hematology/oncology for medical students, physician assistant students, residents from internal medicine, pathology, and family medicine, and fellows from different disciplines.

Fellows

Fellows in our three-year Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program at the University of Vermont Medical Center work with faculty in all settings, evaluating and managing patients under direct supervision.

Graduate Students & Post Doctoral Fellows

Hematology/Oncology faculty members also train graduate students and post doctoral fellows as they pursue their degrees.

Community and Regional Medical Professionals

Along with the University of Vermont Cancer Center, we coordinate several education conferences to advance the medical knowledge of community and regional medical professionals.

University of Vermont Cancer Center Grand Rounds

Physicians from the community attend the UVM Cancer Center Grand Rounds lectures and also participate in tumor boards and multidisciplinary clinics.

Northeastern Genitourinary Oncology Symposium (NGOS)

The University of Vermont Cancer Center, in partnership with McGill University Health Centre and Norris Cotton Cancer Center, presents Northeastern Genitourinary Oncology Symposium each spring. For information, contact Steven Ades from the UVM Cancer Center.

The regional collaborative event draws urologists and medical and radiation oncologists, as well as other health care professionals from the northeastern United States and Quebec for two days of cutting-edge educational sessions on the appropriate evaluation and treatment of patients with undiagnosed renal masses, kidney, bladder, prostate and testis cancers. This conference is CME accredited.
