He subsequently undertook a three year fellowship in Hematology Oncology at NYU Medical Center in New York from 1980-1983. While there he was the Chief Fellow in his third year and also spent a year of lab research in platelet disorders as well as platelet and cancer metastases interactions.

In the last several years he also has been the Physician in charge for the monthly Schwartz Center Rounds, a locally run conference in conjunction with Massachusetts General Hospital and the Schwartz Foundation to improve patient and health care provider relationships. Dr. Lerner was appointed Medical Director of the Meridian Hospice Program in 1994 and continues in this position presently. He became Board Certified in Hospice and Palliative Medicine in 2000 and is the Medical Director of the Palliative Care Programs at both Jersey Shore University Medical Center (JSUMC) as well as Ocean Medical Center (OMC).
