Train, Nurture, Inspire
The Johns Hopkins Hematology & Medical Oncology Fellowship Program has consistently ranked among the top programs in the United States and offers unique, rigorous training designed specifically for fellows with an interest in academic hematology and oncology. Our history of clinical and research excellence, flexibility in training, and unparalleled camraderie makes Hopkins an ideal place to train future leaders.
The mission of the Hematology & Medical Oncology Fellowship Program at Johns Hopkins is to train, inspire, and mentor outstanding leaders in Hematology and Oncology. Our program offers dual or single certification in Hematology or Oncology. Although we are a combined fellowship program, we offer independent tracks in either Hematology or Medical Oncology that provide a unique 12 month training curriculum that is tailored to each specialty. We accept 10 fellows for the Medical Oncology Track and 2 fellows for the Hematology Track each year.
After completing the first year of single-board training, fellows can either choose to:
- Enter directly into 2 years of mentored academic research training or
- Extend their clinical training by an additional 6 months to receive dual certification, followed by 18 months of research training
Our program participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). You can indicate your interest in either the Hematology Track, Medical Oncology Track or both by applying to the respective ERAS track(s). You should also provide a description of your research interests and career plans in the Personal Statement and during your interview. Importantly, all applications are reviewed together, and the track(s) to which you apply will not impact the interview selection process. A more detailed description of the application process can be found here.
Thank you for your interest in our program. For specific questions about the fellowship or application process, please contact Honor Sanderford (email@example.com).
