The Department of Pediatrics at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is offering a one-year program designed to train physicians to effectively evaluate and treat survivors of childhood and adolescent cancer. This is an important educational opportunity since formalized training in the care of survivors of childhood cancers does not exist outside a few major pediatric cancer centers. This program is one of the largest and busiest in the country, with about 1500 – 1600 patient visits per year. There are two clinics within this program: The Pediatric Long-Term Follow-Up (LTFU) clinic and the Adult LTFU clinic.
Program Director: Charles Sklar, MD Associate Program Director: Danielle Novetsky Friedman, MD
