Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship (Minnesota)
The three-year Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program is designed to prepare physicians for an academic career in pediatric hematology/oncology. When you successfully complete this program, you will have the clinical and laboratory skills necessary to obtain an appointment in an academic institution. The clinical portion of the program is integrated with laboratory and research areas. The three years are structured to provide approximately 18 months of clinical experience and 18 months of research experience.
All fellows do a one month rotation at Children's Hospital in Minneapolis, MN for a hematology rotation for sickle cell/hemoglobinopathy experience and a one month rotation at the University of Minnesota for exposure to a large transplant program.
American Board of Pediatrics accredits the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program at Mayo Clinic in Rochester. The fellowship is open to physicians who have successfully completed an accredited pediatric residency program.
Graduates are board-eligible for the pediatric hematology/oncology subspecialty certification. The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship fulfills the requirements for subspecialty training in pediatric hematology/oncology prescribed by the American Board of Pediatrics.
The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program began in 1985, and since that time more than 18 fellows have completed training. It is anticipated that one fellow will complete training in this program annually.
