Hematology & Oncology

As the largest academic cancer center in South Carolina, the MUSC Hollings Cancer Center (HCC) is the state's only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer center and one of only 71 NCI centers in the U.S.

As an integral component of the Hollings Cancer Center, the MUSC Division of Hematology & Oncology builds upon a long history of excellence in hematology and hematological malignancies, as well as solid tumor oncology and bone marrow transplant. Division faculty are leaders in the fields of cancer care and blood disorders. In the latest rankings by U.S. News & World Report, MUSC Health's Hematology/Oncology program ranked as high-performing for the treatment of cancer.


The Division’s fellowship program continues to recruit top tier candidates and is the only hematology oncology training program in the state of South Carolina. The program provides each fellow extensive clinical training in outpatient, inpatient, and consultative medical oncology and benign and malignant hematology, including autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplantation.
