Hematology Oncology Fellowship


The overall goal of the program is to train academic specialists in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology (PHO). The program provides 3 years of clinical and research training. The trainee will acquire the skills and expertise required to be an independent Pediatric Hematologist/Oncologist with an academic career. Training objectives include the following: equip the trainee with the knowledge and skills to provide state of the art care to complex hematology/oncology patients, acquire experience in blood and marrow transplantation, and provide the experience necessary in clinical and basic research for a research career.

The first year is clinical and the last two years are primarily dedicated to research. The research activity is conducted either in the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology or in any of the laboratories on campus involved in hematology or cancer research. Both clinical and research opportunities are available on the MUSC campus.
