• Our Fellowship Program

    The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center is one of the most recognized in the nation. This program has trained more leaders in the pediatric oncology and hematology field than any other. The objective of the training program is to provide the highest quality clinical and research training in hematology/oncology so that our fellows become excellent clinicians and independent investigators making substantive contributions to biomedical research.

    Our program admits six new fellows per year. The fellows spend one year in full-time clinical work and two or more years in research training, depending on previous training and interests. The program is geared to broadly train MD or MD/PhD fellows in any of the areas of clinical research, including outcomes, ethics, epidemiology, therapeutic trials, and translational research, or in one of the major basic science disciplines: protein chemistry, structural biology, molecular biology, stem cell and developmental biology, genetics, genomics, immunology, systems biology, neuroscience, or cell biology.

    Novartis-BCH/DFCI Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Early Oncology Drug Development Fellowship Program
    A one year training opportunity in Early Oncology Drug Development will now be offered as part of the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program. We believe this new program constitutes an important opportunity for fellows to garner training in early drug development, which is a vital way to move the pediatric hematology/oncology field forward. More information on this program is available in the brochure.
