Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowships
A Fellowship Training Program in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology is offered through Johns Hopkins University and the National Cancer Institute.
This fellowship is designed to provide clinical and research exposure that allows for the development of subspecialist academicians adept in laboratory and/or clinical research, coupled with superior patient management skills.
Training in Pediatric Hematology is under the direction of James F. Casella, M.D., chief of Pediatric Hematology and co-director of Fellowship Training at JHU. Training in Pediatric Oncology at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH) is under the direction of Dr. Alan Wayne, co-director of Fellowship Training and Clinical Director of the Pediatric Oncology Branch (POB). Seven fellows per year are selected via the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) to train each year in the program. The first year of the fellowship is largely clinical with inpatient and outpatient exposure at JHU and the NIH. The second and third years are focused research years allowing for training in laboratory and/or clinical research.
Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity
The Department of Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Hematology/Oncology fellowship training program are committed to cultivating and sustaining an environment that fosters the development of diverse physician leaders who are committed to eliminating the nation’s health inequities through patient care, education, advocacy, and research. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values of our fellowship program, department and school of medicine.
Through pathway programming, such as the Johns Hopkins Visiting Resident Elective Program to Promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Pediatric Subspecialties we aim to build a community that reflects the broad array of human differences found in our society at large.
