Basic Science Track

In a 36-month fellowship, if a fellow elects to pursue basic science interests, the last 12-18 months will be devoted to lab time. The first 18 months will be used to cover the core rotations in hematology and oncology. Elective time may include hematopathology, transfusion medicine, radiation oncology and/or the hemophilia center. Continuity clinics in hematology and oncology continue through the first and second years. The continuity clinics may be decreased to one-half day per week for some fellows actively involved in basic science research after discussion with the fellowship committee and the lab mentor.

Clinical Research Track
