The Pennsylvania Society of Oncology and Hematology represents more than 200 physicians and other health care professionals who care for cancer patients. The Society is a non-profit corporation devoted to the improvement of hematologic and oncologic care of patients.

Membership in the Society is open to physicians, allied health professionals, and institutions with a demonstrated interest and involvement in the care of patients with hematologic and oncologic disorders. It is also open to residents and fellows who are actively enrolled in a full-time residency program in hematology or oncology in Pennsylvania or who are in an appropriate fellowship program. Corporate entities involved in the care and treatment of cancer patients may also become members.

The site provides resources for cancer patients, including a searchable database of Society members for those individuals seeking an oncologist, hematologist, surgical oncologist, or radiation oncologist.

The Pennsylvania Society of Oncology and Hematology is grateful to our Corporate Sponsors, whose donations help us fulfill our mission.
