We train top-caliber future leaders in academic pediatric hematology-oncology. Our fellows graduate from the program with a comprehensive understanding of the pathophysiology of pediatric hematologic and oncologic disorders, competence in the clinical diagnosis and management of these disorders, an understanding of clinical trials methodology and in-depth experience in a selected research area.
The fellowship is generally a three-year commitment, though it can be extended to accommodate research needs. The first year provides comprehensive clinical training and subsequent years are devoted to active, direct involvement in clinical, basic or translational research. We strive to provide an experience that advances each individual’s career goals, so the clinical schedule, research activities and educational opportunities can be customized to align with your specific areas of interest.
An integrated part of the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center’s Pediatric Residency Program, the fellowship is certified by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and leads to subspecialty certification.
