Training in Hematology and Oncology

Hematology/Oncology Fellowship TrainingThe BIDMC Hematology/Oncology Fellowship is designed to nurture the development of future leaders in the field and to provide superior clinical and research training in a supportive environment. Expert faculty members in the Division of Hematology & Hematologic Malignancies and the Division of Medical Oncology work closely and longitudinally with fellows as instructors, mentors, and future colleagues.

There are abundant opportunities for mentorship, interdisciplinary collaboration with world-class experts, and opportunities for rigorous professional development through collaborations and resources across the Harvard system. The program's goal is to produce scholars and thought leaders who will devote their careers, in different proportions, to patient care, education, and clinical, translational, or basic research.

The Hematology/Oncology Fellowship provides trainees with the opportunity to develop outstanding depth and expertise in clinical and scholarly areas of their choice and is designed to meet the professional and educational goals of each of its fellows.

We provide opportunities for comprehensive training along three separate tracks, each lasting three years in duration:

  • Traditional Hematology/Oncology Track: for fellows who seek training in Classical Hematology, Malignant Hematology, and Medical Oncology
  • Hematology/Oncology & Hospice and Palliative Medicine Track for fellows who seek training in Classical Hematology, Malignant Hematology, Medical Oncology, and Hospice and Palliative Medicine
  • Hematology Track: for fellows who seek training in Classical Hematology and Malignant Hematology

In our commitment to the furthering of knowledge within the Hematology/Oncology community, we welcome, celebrate, and promote respect for the entire variety of human experience. In our commitment to diversity, we welcome people from all backgrounds, and we seek to include knowledge and values from many cultures and life experiences. Our commitment to work toward an environment that values diversity requires that we create, promote, and maintain activities and programs that further our understanding of individual and group diversity. Our program fosters strong bonds among our fellows and faculty, through peer-to-peer learning, mentorship, collaboration, and a shared sense of community achieved both within the workplace and beyond. At its heart is an ethos fundamentally rooted in mutual respect and a relentless commitment to the pursuit of compassionate excellence.
