Fellowship Overview

Since 1972, the Divisions of Hematology and Medical Oncology at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School have sponsored a combined Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program. This is a three-year accredited fellowship training program offered to eligible candidates.

The program provides in-depth training in hematology, hematologic malignancies, solid tumor oncology and transfusion medicine; experience in the performance and/or interpretation of specialized diagnostic procedures in hematology and oncology; and an exposure to research in these areas.

The hematology/oncology fellowship program was reaccredited in 2007 by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and was commended for its demonstrated substantial compliance with the ACGME's requirements for graduate medical education. This program received the maximum length between reaccreditations.
