Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program

How to Apply


St. Jude accepts six fellows each year for training in Pediatric Hematology-Oncology. Applications are accepted during the Fall match through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®).

Applications must include:

  • Candidate’s personal statement
  • Medical school transcripts
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Letter from your current program director
  • Three other letters of recommendation


The St. Jude Pediatric Hematology-Oncology fellowship is sponsored by the University of Tennessee Graduate Medical Education program.

All fellows entering any graduate medical education program sponsored by the University of Tennessee College of Medicine must have passed USMLE Steps 1 and 2 (CK and CS) or equivalent examinations (COMLEX-USA or MCCQE). Successful completion of USMLE Step 3 is required prior to starting the fellowship.

All international medical graduates must have ECFMG certification in order to enter the fellowship program.

Application Review Process

We offer a unique training environment and seek applicants who have not only successfully completed an ACGME-accredited pediatric residency program, but also demonstrate a commitment to pursue a career in academic pediatric hematology-oncology, excellence in the clinical care of children and proven research ability or a strong potential for success in clinical or laboratory research.

The Fellowship Director and the Fellowship Committee review each application and offer interviews to a select group of applicants. During your interview visit, you will have the opportunity to tour our facilities, interact with current fellows and speak with faculty members with expertise in your area of focus.

Please contact us with any questions as you consider your options and prepare your application materials. We look forward to hearing from you.
