    Dr. Wisch received his MD Degree in 1977 from Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, where he was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha. He completed his medical residency at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. After fellowships in hematology and oncology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Sidney Farber Cancer Institute, he was recruited to Newton-Wellesley Hospital in 1983 as the second member of New England Hematology and Oncology Associates (NEHOA). He served as Associate Chief of the Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology from 1995 to the end of 2012 at NWH and became the Chief of the division in 2013.

    Perhaps most importantly, Dr. Wisch created the Vernon Cancer Center at Newton-Wellesley Hospital and served as the Clinical Director from 2010 until 2017 when he returned as Senior Physician in the Division of GI Oncology at the DFCI. In addition to his clinical responsibilities, he is a member of the Network Development Team and Co-coordinator of the Network Tumor Conferences.
