For Medical Professionals
Hematology and Oncology Fellowship Program
The Hematology and Oncology fellowship program at Boston Medical Center is a combined teaching program with the Boston University School of Medicine and the Boston Veterans Administration Medical Center. The fellowship is an ACGME accredited three year program, and offers three separate tracks: Hematology and Oncology; Geriatric Oncology (with fourth year Hematology option); and Hematology research training.
Fellows are immersed in an intense clinical setting for their first year of fellowship, with a focus on building a strong foundation of knowledge and skills in Hematology and Oncology, both clinically and academically. Fellows will have the opportunity to work in inpatient settings on consult, ward, hematologic malignancies, sickle cell, as well as gain experience in outpatient clinics. Sites for clinical training include the inpatient and outpatient clinics at both the Boston Medical Center and the Boston VA Medical Center. At BMC, the outpatient clinic is in a new state-of-the-art oupatient facility, the Moakley Medical Services Building, which houses the hematology and oncology clinics, infusion suite, multidisciplinary clinic, outpatient stem cell transplantation, Sickle Cell Day Hospital, Photopheresis program as well as outpatient surgery, endoscopy, and radiation therapy.
The educational programs include clinical and research conferences. Participation and presentations in fellowship conferences, such as Rise and Shine, Tumor Board, Grand Rounds, and multi-disciplinary Tumor Board conferences are expected. In the second year of fellowship, focus is on professional development, as faculty work closely with the fellow to determine individual career paths and research interests that progress into successful clinical and laboratory research projects and publications during the third year of fellowship. Fellows will have the opportunity to attend and present at national scientific meetings and prepare for board certification through medical in-service exams during their second and third year of fellowship.
