Hematology and medical oncology are among the most dynamic specialties of internal medicine. Advances in basic and clinical biomedical research, which will only further evolve in the coming decades, make this fellowship exciting from both the clinician and research perspectives.
The Hematology/Oncology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic Arizona trains outstanding specialists in the fields of hematology and oncology who, at the end of three years, will demonstrate clinical expertise in the evaluation and treatment of hematologic and oncologic diseases through supervised intensive care of inpatients and longitudinal care of outpatients.
Our program combines well-rounded clinical training with opportunities to work with world-class investigators in a collegial environment. The three-year Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program at Mayo Clinic Arizona offers:
- Training of superior specialists who will be prepared for careers in clinical practice or academic medicine
- Multidisciplinary approaches to patients with hematologic and oncologic disorders
- Research options in hematology, oncology or basic science
- Opportunities to teach Mayo Clinic School of Medicine students, visiting students from other medical schools and internal medicine residents
Applicants with a strong interest in hematology research are encouraged to apply concurrently to the NIH-funded Multidisciplinary Training Program in Experimental Hematology, which provides in-depth training for candidates interested in investigative careers in various areas of hematology.
This training program fulfills the requirements for training as stated by the American Board of Internal Medicine and is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
You will be eligible to take the American Board of Internal Medicine's subspecialty examination in hematology/oncology upon completion of the fellowship.
The Hematology/Oncology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic Arizona began in 2006. It is anticipated that one fellow will complete training in this program annually.
Mayo Clinic also offers separate Hematology/Oncology Fellowships at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville and Mayo Clinic in Rochester.
