Program Overview


The Hematology/Oncology Fellowship at BIDMC aims to produce leaders in the field who will devote their careers, in different proportions, to clinical care, teaching, and research. The fellowship provides trainees with the opportunity to develop outstanding depth and expertise in the fields of their choice and is designed to meet the professional and educational goals of each of its fellows.

At BIDMC we care for a quickly growing and diverse array of patients with both common and rarer clinical disorders. We currently see more than 60,000 patients per year at BIDMC's Cancer Center. In addition, BIDMC investigators in the Division of Hematology/Oncology, the Cancer Research Institute and across the medical center are engaged in cutting-edge science and the development of promising new therapies. There are flourishing clinical research activities spanning the breadth of hematology and oncology, emphasizing diagnosis, management, and longitudinal follow-up of patients. Of special note are laboratory-based programs on hematopoiesis, signal transduction, and the biochemistry of coagulation factors as well as translational research programs in prostate cancer, melanoma, renal cancer, adoptive immunotherapy, and hypercoagulable states.

Many of our clinical programs are multidisciplinary, which facilitates active discussion and collaboration between specialties, and function as disease site programs within BIDMC (e.g. breast cancer, cutaneous oncology, thoracic oncology, genitourinary oncology, GI oncology). As our clinical and research programs have grown, so too have our faculty and fellowship ranks. In keeping with these developments, we work together with the fellows to adjust the breadth of rotations in our clinical training program to provide an optimal balance between the invaluable experience of managing many patients with different disorders and allowing time for reflection, reading, and scholarly work.

We believe that BIDMC offers a dynamic and ideal training environment to fellows with a variety of professional goals. It is based in a medical center that is renowned for humane, superlative clinical care and is combined with teaching and cutting-edge research to produce a stimulating introduction to the subspecialties of hematology and oncology. We invite you to contact us if you have questions or would like any additional information about our program.
