Hematology/Medical Oncology
Fellowship Program

The Division of Hematology co-directs the joint Hematology/Medical Oncology Fellowship program (for more information and how to apply see this page). We are extremely proud of our history of training outstanding Hematologists all over the world, and feel that we have a truly unique training program. There are only few Hematology training programs that include the breadth of training provided at Jefferson. Our program is uniquely comprehensive because the Hematology Division: 1) runs a Hemophilia/Thrombosis Center, 2) runs an adult Sickle Cell Center, 3) runs the Blood Bank/Transfusion Medicine Service for the Thomas Jefferson Hospital, and 4) runs the Special Coagulation Laboratory for the Hospital. Our fellows also have exposure to many different clinical faculty and a broad array of basic and clinical research opportunities.


The Hematology section of the Foundations of Clinical Medicine course for second year Jefferson medical students has been noted for its use of team teaching with Pathology and Pharmacology. The lectures and small groups involve all of the Divisional faculty, and excellent interaction with the members of the Hematologic Malignancies section of the joint J University Physicians Hematology/Medical Oncology practice. In addition, Divisional faculty participate actively in resident education and education of 3rd and 4th year medical students via didactic lectures for Medicine residents and through teaching on Hematology electives.

  • Hematology Grand Rounds, Tuesday noon, Curtis 903
  • Hematology morphology and case presentations, Friday 8 AM, Curtis 903

Training of post-doctoral fellows and graduate students
