The Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Fellowship program is structured to provide training for bright, highly motivated candidates seeking careers in academic medicine. The fellowship is at minimum a three-year experience and provides broad training in clinical medicine, as well as a highly structured program in bench or clinical research.
The clinical service is diverse, drawing patients from Utah and the Mountain West. The scientific environment at the University of Utah is world class, and we encourage our trainees to immerse themselves in productive and cutting edge research in biomedical laboratories throughout the University.
Not to be overlooked, our campus is on the edge of the Wasatch Mountains, providing a breathtaking physical environment, minutes away from fabulous recreational activities.
Faculty members in the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology are well-poised to mentor trainees to achieve goals. The division is an active participant in the Children's Oncology Group (COG), and many division and associated faculty members sit on COG committees.
Division members also have active clinical, translational, and basic-science research programs, and have a strong interest in education. These wide-ranging interests allow division members to mentor trainees and ensure they receive appropriate career opportunities as they complete their fellowship program.
The program provides comprehensive training and mentorship throughout all phases of fellowship training.
