Clinical Rotations

Dylan Graetz, MD, with patient

During their first year, fellows work in multidisciplinary clinical teams to develop subspecialty expertise in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings.

The first fellowship year provides comprehensive clinical training in multiple specialty areas, along with initial exposure to clinical investigations and research methods. Fellows work in multidisciplinary teams to provide outstanding care and develop subspecialty expertise in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings.


Rotations are based on a 4-week block schedule.

Continuity Clinic

Continuity clinic is a mentored, longitudinal experience. Fellows will serve as primary providers for their patients under the guidance and supervision of leading experts. Each fellow will lead a multidisciplinary team that includes advanced practice providers, nurses and other staff. Fellows have a full day of continuity clinic each week through all 3 years of fellowship and care for a broad, diverse group of patients in both Hematology and Oncology services.

Call Schedule

Oncology services: Fellows are not on overnight call during the week in order to maximize daytime presence as the leader of the service without violating duty hours. First-year fellows cover on average every other weekend, with a mixture of in-house and at-home call during the weekends on service.

Hematology and consult services: Fellows have 1–2 nights of at-home call per week and are on service for 1–2 weekends per block. Weekends on service include at-home call.

Second- and third-year fellows cover 6–12 weekends per year spread across Hematology and Oncology services.

Fellows have three weeks (15 weekdays) of vacation time per academic year in up to five-day increments that can be taken during most rotations. Any unused days can rollover to the next year. In addition, 2 personal days are granted each year. First-year fellows will have an additional 5 days off for one of the major holidays and those taking the General Pediatrics Certifying Examination will have several extra days off for studying.
