Blood and Marrow Transplantation

Fellowships are offered to individuals who have completed their fellowships in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, Pediatric Immunology, Adult Oncology or Adult Hematology and who desire additional exposure and training in clinical and research aspects of  Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation. The curriculum is individualized for each fellow. Fellows may rotate through inpatient and clinical rotations, the stem cell laboratory and the cord blood bank.  If interested, our fellows adopt a clinical or basic research project (with a mentor) which would require a second year of fellowship.
