Department and Faculty
Mayo Clinic is a world leader in the treatment of patients with all types of diseases and is especially well-known for its programs in cancer, and many other disorders that, in certain forms, are incurable. This provides a unique learning environment in which fellows can immediately apply acquired knowledge and skills.
Within the Division of Hematology/Oncology hundreds of palliative care consultations take place each year. The division’s staff diagnoses, evaluates and treats patients with malignant diseases and hematologic disorders, including any type of:
- Bleeding disorder, including low platelet levels, and easy bruising or bleeding
- Blood-related disorder
- Blood and marrow disorder, including leukemia
- Cancer or malignant disease, rare and common
- Myeloproliferative disorder
- Myelodysplastic syndrome
The Division of Hematology/Oncology is fully integrated with other medical specialties and has several subspecialty clinics, including the Breast Clinic, blood and marrow transplant program, and chemotherapy and Infusion centers.
Mayo Clinic actively participates in clinical trials of newer therapies for malignant disorders, including many Phase I and Phase II trials. In addition to intramural protocols, other trials involve cooperative efforts with a variety of groups.
Our fellowship is designed to provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. You will work with faculty members who can introduce you and your family to the Arizona campus and the Mayo Clinic system.
