Program highlights

Hematology/Oncology offers a 3-year training program in hematology and medical oncology leading to eligibility for board certification in either subspecialty or both. The primary purpose of the fellowship is to provide training so that graduates of the program are qualified for highly productive careers in academic institutions and other settings.

The goal of the first year of the training program is to provide a clinical environment for the fellow to develop skills and experience in the comprehensive care of cancer patients and in the diagnosis and management of hematologic diseases. The fellow will rotate on a monthly basis to clinical services at the University Campus, Memorial Campus, or the Bone Marrow Transplant Service. Each fellow is assigned a longitudinal clinic at either the University of Memorial Campuses of 3 years in duration.

Training during the second and third years will be individualized according to career goals. Those fellows planning an academic career will have an extended period of time devoted to research training (18 months, if seeking dual board eligibility). Clinical training may include elective rotations in radiation oncology, transfusion medicine, pain management/palliative care, coagulation/immunohematology, gynecologic oncology, ambulatory hematology and/or oncology, and outpatient bone marrow transplantation. Other electives can be designed according to individual needs and interest. All fellows will be required to do a minimum of one month’s rotation in hematopathology, radiation oncology, blood banking and transfusion/ apheresis medicine.
