The purpose of this systemic review is to summarize the various cancer rehabilitation fellowship programs in the USA and the scope of training in this discipline. Currently, four institutions offer such a training program. All of the fellowship directors were contacted about characteristics of their programs. The oldest program has been in existence since 2007. All of these programs are 1 year in duration and have between one and two fellowship positions annually. There have been total of 29 graduates as of July 2017. With regard to cancer rehabilitation care delivery model, all four centers reported inpatient consult teams and outpatient rehabilitation. Outpatient experience included electrodiagnosis, botulin toxin, and ultrasound-guided injections. Three of the four programs also reported the presence of an acute inpatient cancer rehabilitation service. A number of clinical rotations are available at each of the four programs with considerable variation. Comprehensive educational efforts are present in all programs with varying expectations for research.
