How to Apply & FAQs


Q: How are you handling fellowship applications this season? 

A: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fellowship application process this year will be conducted virtually. Applications are due to the electronic residency application service (ERAS)

We will review all applications and issue interview invites by mid September. Interviews will be conducted virtually on select dates in October. 

We understand this is not the traditional, in-person experience that fellowship candidates generally count on, and our proud of our facilities and campus. However, we will do our best to allow candidates to gain as much knowledge about our program as possible in a virtual manner while protecting everyone’s health and safety.

Q: What types of tracks or boarding do you offer?

A: We have a flexible training program that allows fellows to pursue boarding in either medical oncology, hematology, or both. Fellows interested in studying hematologic malignancies can do so through either track. Fellows can also choose to double board regardless of their career interests. After completing the first year, fellows can choose to enter into two years of mentored academic research training or extend their clinical training by an additional six months to receive dual certification, followed by 18 months of research training. 


Q: What is your commitment to diversity?

A: Johns Hopkins Medicine attracts employees and trainees from many cultures and ethnicities worldwide, and is proud to uphold the values of respect, dignity, integrity, inclusion, excellence and diversity. The Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity provides our community information on cultural events, religious and spiritual observations that may be relevant to employees and patients throughout Johns Hopkins Medicine, and is drafting a diversity, inclusion and health equity strategic action plan to be rolled out starting in fiscal year 2021. On June 5, staff members from throughout our community gathered to take a knee in solidarity with the Johns Hopkins House Staff Diversity Council and White Coats for Black Lives, a national organization founded by medical students. Johns Hopkins Medicine also participates in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month events and celebrations in Baltimore; Washington, D.C.; Howard County, Md.; Annapolis, Md.; and St. Petersburg, Fla. We are continuously working to improve diversity in patient participation in clinical trials as well as in our workforce. 

Q: Do you offer visas for non-U.S. citizens? 

A: For non-U.S. citizens, we offer J1 exchange visitor visas. However, the university is unable to routinely sponsor H1B visas.
