Hawaii Cancer Care (HCC) is a private, single specialty group in Hawaii focused on Hematology and Medical Oncology. We actively participate in clinical care, innovative clinical research, and education of health professionals. Currently, six physicians, two nurse practitioners, and over 50 staff work in HCC. Our group works with national research networks such as Alliance, South West Oncology Group (SWOG), NCCTG, ECOG, NSABP, NRG, and ACOSOG. Local ties include American Cancer Society, University of Hawaii Cancer Center, Queens Medical Center Cancer Center (part of the MD Anderson Cancer Center Network), and University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine.
Internship students will have the opportunity to be involved in active front-line cancer research. They will be able to participate in every stage of clinical trials: selection of studies, screening patients for individual studies, enrollment into protocols, and monitoring data while on therapy. In addition, they can contribute to on-going Quality Improvement programs (e.g. Quality Oncology Practice Initiative). They will be able to attend educational symposiums and community service projects (e.g. American Cancer Society Relay of Life).
Students will be able to attend multidisciplinary tumor conferences (e.g. site specific conferences for breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancers), monthly research meetings, and weekly screening meetings for study eligibility.
