Clinical and Research Programs

The UAB Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program is a three-year training program approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and affiliated with the Pediatric Residency Program at the University of Alabama School of Medicine. The program provides an educational environment for fellows to develop a comprehensive understanding of the pathophysiology of pediatric hematologic and oncologic disorders and excellence in the clinical diagnosis and management of these disorders. The program emphasizes the fundamentals of clinical diagnosis and provides an abundant and diverse clinical experience. Fellows are mentored by faculty composed of academic hematologists-oncologists, basic science researchers, clinician-educators, and clinical researchers. The program is housed in the only free-standing children’s hospital in the state and fellows rotate through the hematology-oncology inpatient service, stem cell transplant, outpatient hematology, and neuro-oncology. Additionally, trainees have access to specialized programs for childhood cancer survivors, developmental therapeutics, sickle cell disease, bone marrow failure disorders, hemostasis, and thrombosis. During their second and third years, fellows may take advantage of world-class basic science and translational research laboratories across the UAB campus or pursue clinical research activities while obtaining a Master of Science in Public Health. The program is flexible and is tailored to suit each individual's interests, previous experience, and future career goals. Upon completion of the program, our fellows are well prepared for careers in academic pediatric hematology-oncology.
