Hematology/Oncology Fellowship, Pediatric

Pediatric Hematology and Oncology FellowshipThe three year fellowship training program in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital is designed to train physicians and physician-scientists in preparation for successful careers in academic pediatric hematology and oncology. The fellowship program is an active participant of the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). Perspective applicants are strongly encouraged to register with NRMP prior to initiating their application process for fellowship training. As an ACGME-accredited training program, we offer 2 fellowship trainee positions per year. We currently participate in ERAS, and our fellowship is listed under the institution name of "Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine / University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center / University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital" in Cleveland, Ohio.

Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Fellowship 2During the first year of a three year program, fellows receive intensive training in the inpatient, outpatient and consultation settings. Under close supervision of superb clinical faculty with significant clinical expertise and in many cases national reputation, fellows are responsible for the diagnosis and care of children and adolescents with a wide variety of clinical problems in hematology, coagulation disorders, pediatric and AYA oncology, and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Building on strong clinical skills and background, fellows then enter training during the second and third years in intensive thesis-driven research projects. Seminars, didactic lecture series, case-based teaching and presentation, formal and informal mentoring sessions (sample curriculum) are all part of the rigorous training program designed to cultivate fully competent clinicians and tomorrow’s leaders in basic, translational, and clinical research as relates to the field of pediatric hematology and oncology.

Expanded Education Opportunitites

In addition to the main fellowship program, UH Rainbow hematology/oncology faculty also offer specialized fellowship training in two key areas: pediatric sickle cell disease and hemostasis & thrombosis. Graduates from accredited pediatric hematology and oncology fellowship training programs can apply for a 4th year (PGY7) and potentially 5th year (PGY8) opportunity to gain in-depth experience in either pediatric sickle cell disease or pediatric hemostasis and thrombosis. These UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s marquee programs give trainees access to high volume clinics in each discipline, a well-established linkage between pediatric and adult programs caring for these populations at the same center, and the opportunity to engage in clinical research that spans new therapeutics, emerging gene therapies and cellular therapies for these childhood blood disorders.
