Doernbecher Children’s Hospital diagnoses more than 200 new pediatric patients with cancer and blood disorders each year. As a result, fellows deal with a wide variety of clinical pediatric hematologic and oncologic problems.
The mission of the Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and Oregon Health & Science University is to provide fellows the opportunity to develop the clinical and research skills necessary to become productive and successful leaders in academic pediatric hematology-oncology. Our trainees are pediatricians who become clinician educators or clinician scientists and pursue academic careers in clinical, epidemiological, translational, or laboratory-based research.
The fellowship is a three-year program. After acceptance into our program, all fellows are guaranteed funding for the entire three years of fellowship. However, seeking and writing for other funding opportunities are encouraged.
Goals and Objectives
Upon successful completion of our training program, fellows will:
- Have a comprehensive understanding of the pathophysiology of pediatric hematologic and oncologic disorders
- Be competent in the clinical diagnosis and management of these disorders
- Understand clinical trials methodology
- Have competence in a selected research interest
Our program seeks to nurture and develop laboratory researchers and clinical investigators.
