Learn more about the faculty’s clinical expertise and research
The Adult Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Fellowship Program at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is an independent, one-year program designed to prepare physicians for academic careers in Bone Marrow Transplantation, including experience with clinical research.
The Bone Marrow Transplantation Program at MSKCC was founded in 1973 and is one of the largest in the country, performing autologous, related, unrelated, and cord blood transplants.
The fellowship provides training in inpatient and outpatient Allogeneic and Autologous BMT, with specific focus on the different subspecialties within Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation, as well as exposure to the different disciplines that relate to Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation. These include Radiation Oncology, and clinical laboratory rotations.
Fellows will also have opportunities to participate in ongoing research projects or initiate an independent project. This process will be helped by the assigning of a mentor throughout the fellowship, who will ensure that the objectives of the fellow are met for the training year.
The program includes a wide variety of conferences that complement the clinical aspects. These are based on a disease management concept and will group physicians from different specialties who treat the disease in question. In addition to these patient-based conferences, a weekly research meeting is held.
