Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program at Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York

Overview

The fellowship program in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology is a three year Pediatric Sub-Board approved fellowship, designed for individuals who plan to pursue a full-time career in academic pediatric hematology/oncology. The program provides a broad clinical experience as well as significant research opportunities. Special research interests, whether clinical or in basic science, are met through the resources of the Hofstra North-Shore-LIJ School of Medicine and the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research (FIMR) as well as those of the Division.

We believe that clinical fellow training is best accomplished through primary responsibility for patient care, which is the emphasis of the first year. Fellows develop a cadre of primary patients for whom they act as the primary oncologist over the duration of their training program. They take responsibility for all aspects of their care under the supervision of attending physicians. They are responsible for supervision of residents on the inpatient service and are expected to take meticulous, detail-oriented care of their patients. Self-initiated learning and teaching of residents is then complemented by case-based attending teaching on rounds as well a core curriculum and several weekly conferences.
