Research Pathways

OHSU’s Hematology/Medical Oncology fellowship offers a clinical investigation pathway and a basic science pathway.

Clinical Research Pathway

This pathway is designed to train fellows for academic careers in hematology/oncology clinical investigation. On this pathway, you will participate in designing and writing a clinical trial protocol. You will also  participate in all aspects of trial design, IRB submission, patient accrual and enrollment and follow-up.

Fellows are also required to participate in the Human Investigations Program (HIP) at OHSU.

OHSU’s Human Investigations Program (HIP) HIP Course Link, is designed to meet the growing need for clinical investigators. With increased knowledge of the basic science of disease, well-trained clinical scientists can translate these concepts from the bench to the bedside and to the community. Participants may earn a Certificate of Training in Human Investigations or a Master of Clinical Research degree, The Human Investigations Program at OHSU is supported by a K30 training grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and sponsored by OHSU’s School of Medicine, the Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center and other OHSU divisions and departments.

Basic Science Pathway

This pathway is designed to train fellows for academic careers in hematology/oncology basic science and translational research. On this pathway, you will work with a mentor to outline a project proposal, with the goal of writing and submitting a NRSA or K08 grant application. A curriculum of research conferences, journal clubs and appropriate HIP courses is strongly encouraged.
