Message from the Chief

The Division of Hematology is dedicated to providing the highest quality advanced subspecialized hematology care in an academic medical school setting. Our practice strives to incorporate the latest in hematologic research and teaching to the care of patients with hematologic disorders.  The Division develops and provides clinical, academic, research, laboratory, and teaching programs through Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Rutgers Health, and its primary teaching hospital, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.

Hematology division faculty actively participate in teaching and training the next generation of Hematology subspecialists, Internal Medicine Program residents, as well as second-, third- and fourth-year medical students. The Division offers a 3 year ACGME-accredited fellowship training program in Hematology and Medical Oncology through an integrated program in conjunction with Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and RWJ Barnabas Health.

Hematology Division faculty conduct a large number of research projects with federal, state, foundation and industry grant funding support. This support enables the division to provide a number of specialized and statewide referral centers and programs - providing advanced subspecialized clinical care and specialized coagulation laboratory services for patients with hematologic disorders on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
