As an ACGME-accredited training program, we offer 2 fellowship trainee positions per year. We currently participate in ERAS, and our fellowship is listed under the institution name of "Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine / University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center / University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital" in Cleveland, Ohio.
During the first year of a three year program, fellows receive intensive training in the inpatient, outpatient and consultation settings. Under close supervision of superb clinical faculty with significant clinical expertise, fellows are responsible for the diagnosis and care of children and adolescents with a wide variety of clinical problems in hematology, coagulation disorders, oncology, and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Building on a strong clinical skills and background, fellows then enter training during the second and third years in intensive thesis-driven research projects. Seminars, didactic lecture series, case-based teaching and presentation, formal and informal mentoring sessions (sample curriculum) are all part of the rigorous training program designed to cultivate fully competent clinicians and tomorrow’s leaders in basic, translational, and clinical research as relates to the field of pediatric hematology and oncology.
