Associated Medical Professionals of NY (A.M.P.) is pleased to announce that

Matthew J. Jones, FNP-C, has been recognized by the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) for receiving the SITC Graduate in Cancer Immunotherapy (SITC-G) certificate.

The SITC-G certificate identifies a healthcare provider as completing specialized training in providing effective and safe care for cancer patients treated with immunotherapy. Providers achieving this recognition develop a comprehensive understanding of cancer immunotherapies, including checkpoint inhibitors, cell therapies and many others, as well as the management of side effects, allowing them to successfully implement immunotherapy clinical practice.

Christopher M. Pieczonka, MD, Chief Executive Officer of Associated Medical Professionals of NY and Corporate Director of Clinical Research of U.S. Urology Partners, stated, “It is widely believed that cancer treatment cannot be any more personalized than harvesting the patient’s own immune system to attack and destroy the cancer. The process of administering immunotherapy to a patient requires a skilled, confident and knowledgeable provider to understand the benefits but be able to manage the side effects. Matthew’s certification from SITC shows that he is ready, willing and able to able to provide this highest level of care to our cancer patients.”

My interest is in immunotherapy, and now being SITC certified allows us to build this program and expand our IO therapies including through clinical protocols.”
