Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center provides a fellowship program in pediatric hematology/oncology through a joint program with the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital of the Weill Medical College of Cornell University (NYPH-WMC).
This combined fellowship training program has a tradition of developing physician-scientists who are rigorously trained in the diagnosis and treatment of blood disorders and neoplastic diseases in children and young adults, as well as in the conduct of clinical and/or laboratory investigation. Our Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited three-year fellowship program aims to train future leaders in pediatric hematology/oncology.
The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Training Program has two main objectives:
- To provide comprehensive training in the evaluation and care of children and young adults with blood disorders and cancer, leading to board eligibility in the subspecialty of pediatric hematology/oncology
- To develop highly qualified and productive investigators in clinical and/or laboratory-based cancer research.
The fellowship training program is dedicated to training future academicians. Candidate selection is based upon evidence of both outstanding clinical ability and a strong interest in a research career. Candidates should be board eligible or certified in pediatrics.
