MOBILE, Alabama (7/13/2018) -- Dr. Pranitha Prodduturvar and Dr. Ashish Manne are the first two physicians chosen for a new two-year medical oncology fellowship program at the University of South Alabama.

The program, approved earlier this year by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, began July 1. USA Hospitals is the sponsoring institution of the program while USA Mitchell Cancer Institute is the major site for training.

“The fellowship program joins the ranks of more than 200 ACGME-certified programs nationwide in medical oncology,” said Dr. David Clarkson, program director and professor of interdisciplinary clinical oncology at MCI. “In addition, it adds to the already established residency and fellowship programs at USA, thus enlarging the scope and breadth of our advanced training programs.”

Dr. Prodduturvar earned her medical degree from the Government Medical College in Nagpur, India. She completed a residency in internal medicine at St. Joseph Hospital in Chicago and a fellowship in hospice and palliative medicine at the University of Chicago. She most recently served as a hospitalist and assistant professor of medicine at Northwell Health Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, New York. Her areas of interest include lung cancer, breast cancer and supportive oncology.

Dr. Manne earned his medical degree from Osmania Medical College in Hyderabad, India. He completed an internal medicine residency at the Montgomery campus of the University of Alabama at Birmingham and most recently served as a fellow in Blood Banking and Transfusion Medicine at UAB in Birmingham. His area of interest includes gastrointestinal cancers.
