Pediatric Hematology/Oncology/Blood and Marrow Transplant Fellowship Program
Our program goals are to:
- Impart knowledge and experiences necessary for optimal care of children with hematological and oncological disorders.
- Provide the fundamentals for a successful career in clinical or basic research.
- Guide the fellow, as a junior faculty member, to develop teaching expertise.
Over the past three decades, the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology/Blood and Marrow Transplant Division at the Medical College of Wisconsin has developed one of the preeminent fellowship training programs in the country. We train the pediatric hematologists, oncologists, and transplant teams of the future through excellence in patient care, teaching, and research. Our program combines broad clinical training and abundant research opportunities in a collegial work environment emphasizing both clinical and scholarly activity.
During our three-year training program, time is distributed among both clinical and research opportunities to ensure that fellows develop expertise in the fields of pediatric hematology, oncology, and blood and marrow transplant. The program provides approximately 11 months in the first year and 1 month or more in the second and third years for clinical work. Approximately 21 months of protected time in years two and three are dedicated to hypothesis driven research.
