Hematology/Oncology and Hospice & Palliative Medicine Track

Three Year Curriculum Overview

Year 1

The first year of the fellowship focuses on providing participants with a solid foundation of clinical knowledge and experience through high-impact educational conferences and longitudinal, outpatient-focused clinical training. Fellows will be paired with disease experts for more focused learning opportunities.

Year 2

Following the comprehensive clinical experiences in clinical hematology/oncology in the first year of fellowship, trainees will focus on a combination of inpatient and outpatient clinical and didactic training in hospice and palliative medicine in their second year. Additionally, they will maintain a longitudinal clinic in hematology/oncology.

Year 3

The final year of training will be largely reserved for pursuit of individual scholarship and professional development needs based on each fellows’ chosen career path. Trainees can pursue additional clinical experience in the form of electives based on interest and career goals.

Independent Scholarship and Professional Development

Time for initiation and pursuit of independent scholarly project(s) of each fellow’s choosing; this work will be continued longitudinally and with mentored oversight.  This includes time for writing IRB proposals, research protocols, manuscripts and grants, as well as time for pursuing coursework or meetings/collaborations relevant to the individual’s professional development needs.
