The UNC Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology offers a fully accredited three-year fellowship program. The first year emphasizes clinical training including inpatient and outpatient services, hematopathology, radiation therapy, transfusion and coagulation medicine, and bone marrow transplantation.
The second and third years are structured to maximize the fellows' experience in clinical or basic science research. Opportunities for specialized training of fellows in areas such as molecular biology, epidemiology, and public health are available through the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, the School of Public Health, and the School of Medicine.
Didactic sessions are ongoing and include weekly patient management, bone marrow transplantation, slide review conferences; alternate week tumor boards and a board review course; a 2-month introduction to research, which teaches basic statistics, grantsmanship, manuscript writing, IRB issues, and other fundamentals of academics.
Fellows are salaried for all 3 years through our fundraising efforts but are encouraged to apply for grants to help support second and third year research activities.
All fellowship applications should be completed through ERAS.
