Cooper University Health Care and MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper

Cooper and MD Anderson exteriorTraining Program Director: Catherine Loveland-Jones, MD, MS

Associate Program Director: Ryan A. Gruner, MD


Cooper University Health Care is a busy academic health care system that accommodates nearly two million patient visits each year. The Cooper Health Sciences campus is home to Cooper University Hospital, MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper, Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper, and Cooper Medical School of Rowan University. Our 660-plus experts practice in more than 75 specialties and teach the next generation of physicians at Cooper Medical School of Rowan University.

In October 2013, Cooper University Health Care and MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, partnered to create MD Anderson at Cooper. This partnership is a full clinical integration between our two programs. MD Anderson at Cooper adheres to the philosophy, processes, and guidelines set by MD Anderson in Houston, Texas. Advanced cancer services are provided at our Camden, Voorhees, Mount Laurel, Egg Harbor Township, and Willingboro, NJ locations. The Janet Knowles Breast Cancer Center is fully accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.


Cooper’s Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship provides comprehensive education for one fellow each year in all aspects of benign and malignant breast diseases. Our goal is to provide outstanding training that will enable the graduate to pursue an academic or community-based career with leadership potential.

Focused on a multidisciplinary approach to breast cancer care, the fellow will gain thorough experience via rotations in Breast Surgery, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Breast Imaging, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Pathology, Community Outreach, Genetics, Behavioral Medicine, Integrative Oncology, and Rehabilitation Medicine. The fellow will participate in a research project in an area of his or her interest with the goal of at least one publication or presentation at a regional or national meeting. The fellow will work closely with the breast surgeons as well as the multidisciplinary physicians, nurse navigators, clinical practice nurses, and nurse practitioners. During the 20-week breast surgery rotation, the fellow will be involved with graduate medical education while leading a service of surgical residents and several third and/or fourth-year medical students. The fellow will attend and present at conferences such as Tumor Board, Morbidity and Mortality, Monthly Journal Club, and multidisciplinary conferences within MD Anderson Cancer Center Network®, a program of MD Anderson. Finally, the fellow will participate in initiatives related to quality of care.
