We invite you to learn more about our Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program and welcome you to explore Life in Rochester. The University of Rochester offers an ACGME accredited Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program designed to prepare physicians for academic careers as clinicians, educators, and independent investigators. Fellows benefit from an educational experience that fosters their professional and personal development; they are mentored by dedicated faculty, many of whom are nationally recognized as accomplished clinicians and research investigators.
Why Choose Our Program?
- Spectrum of Diagnoses: Fellows in our Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship train in a center that exclusively serves the region, allowing them to experience the full scope of Hematology/Oncology. The Division is a member of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG) and is the sole caretaker of children with cancer and blood disorders in the 11-county region surrounding Rochester, New York.
- Active Transplant Program: The University of Rochester has an active Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Program performing autologous, related, and unrelated (bone marrow and cord blood) transplants and CAR T-cell therapy. The program is a member of the National Marrow Donor Program and the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium.
- Palliative Care Expertise: Our fellows rotate on the Pediatric Palliative Care service under the supervision of experienced pediatric palliative care physicians. They work closely with the interdisciplinary palliative care teams, enhancing skills essential for providing comprehensive, compassionate care to patients with cancer and hematologic disorders.
- Research Support: Fellows have the opportunity to conduct interdepartmental research across the university and are not just limited to the Pediatric Hematology Oncology department. The Department of Pediatrics provides financial support for each fellow to present at one national conference per year, as this contributes to their professional development and hones their presentation and networking skills.
