Overview & Special Features
The Division of Hematology/Oncology in the Department of Medicine sponsors a fully accredited three-year combined fellowship with a total of nine positions, leading to eligibility for board certification in both hematology and medical oncology.
The goal of the fellowship is the development of excellent clinical consultants. Opportunities to participate in both clinical and laboratory research are integral to that goal. Divisional teaching faculty has diverse interests spanning the range of classical hematology, solid tumors, hematologic malignancies, and palliative and supportive care.
In addition to a weekly continuity clinic, fellows obtain practical outpatient experience in hospital-based faculty practice, community-based private practice and HMO practice settings. This provides the trainees with an opportunity to sample the differences in styles of practice they will choose from upon completion of their training.
