Our three-year, ACGME-accredited program offers trainees a comprehensive understanding of the clinical and research components of pediatric hematology/oncology. As the major provider of this subspecialty service in the Greater Rochester Area and surrounding counties, we serve a population of more than 1.5 million. This provides opportunities for our fellows to study a wide range of hematologic and oncologic diseases including conditions relating to brain tumors, sickle cell, and bone marrow transplantation.
Fellows earn increased responsibility in clinical settings as their knowledge base grows, culminating in the third year of training with a one-month “junior attending” rotation. By the end of their fellowship, they will be well-versed in managing and conducting research and teaching pediatric house staff and medical students.
Fellows may also explore many masters’ level programs available through the institution, including a Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MS-CLI).
