Welcome to the Johns Hopkins Division of Hematology, Department of Medicine web site. Our mission is to provide the highest quality clinical care for our patients, develop novel diagnostic and therapeutic tools from our basic and translational research programs, and to train and mentor the next generation of academic physicians through our exceptional fellowship program.
Hematology faculty provide expert primary and consultative care for patients with a diverse spectrum of benign and malignant blood-related disorders. Clinical disorders of particular interest include: bone marrow failure disorders (aplastic anemia, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, myelodysplastic syndromes, LGL leukemia, pure red cell aplasia), myeloproliferative disorders (polycythemia vera, essential thrombocytosis, chronic myeloid leukemia, systemic mastocytosis, myelofibrosis), coagulation disorders, sickle cell anemia, and a variety of other benign and malignant disorders.
The ACGME-approved Hematology and Oncology programs at Johns Hopkins offer fellowship training in Hematology, Oncology or combined Hematology/Oncology. The major goal of our Fellowship Training Program is to provide combined clinical and research training in order to prepare trainees for careers as physician-scientists or clinical investigators in academic medicine. During their Hematology training, fellows rotate through an inpatient/consultatative hematology service, bone marrow transplantation, acute leukemia, transfusion medicine, laboratory medicine/coagulation, hemepath, and an outpatient hematology rotation. The Division of Hematology has one of the oldest Hematology training grants in the country affording fellows the opportunity to pursue basic or clinical research in their second and third year of training. The Division offers ample translational and basic research opportunities in hematopoiesis, stem cell biology, bone marrow failure disorders, cancer genetics, myeloproliferative disorders, coagulation, hemoglobinopathies and blood banking.
We invite you to learn more about our Division's clinical activities, research and training programs, and our faculty members by exploring this web site. We appreciate your interest and encourage you to contact us for further information.
