Penn's Division of Hematology/Oncology oversees two fellowships: the Penn Hematology/Oncology Fellowship and the Penn Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship. The Division also facilitates the Benign Hematology Program, an HLBI K12 Program.
Penn's Division of Hematology/Oncology offers a 3-year combined fellowship in Hematology and Medical Oncology which provides outstanding training that is balanced amongst all realms including solid tumors, hematologic malignancies, blood and marrow transplantation, and benign or 'classical' hematology.
Our fellowship breeds excellence in both the clinical and the investigative arenas. Our aim is to produce pioneering thinkers, top-notch clinicians, and investigative innovators who will become the next generation of leaders in academic hematology and medical oncology.
The hematology/oncology fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania offers the opportunity to learn in a unique and vibrant environment, allowing talented and motivated individuals to gain skill sets that position them to become leaders in the field of hematology/oncology.
Fellows receive clinical training through a wide range of experiences in benign hematology, hematologic malignancies and stem cell transplantation, and solid tumor oncology, as well as research training in one of several settings.
Benign Hematology Program
The benign hematology program is currently supported by NIH-funded research training grants in hematology, oncology, pathology and epidemiology.
Penn's Division of Hematology/Oncology is home to several NIH institutional career development awards (K12) to facilitate the transition from fellowship to junior faculty. Members of the training program currently receive more than $40 million in research support from external agencies.
Penn Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship Program
The Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania's fellowship in hospice and palliative medicine is a 1-year ACGME-accredited clinical fellowship within the department of medicine. Fellows participate in a high-volume, interdisciplinary clinical program aimed to train future leaders in clinical care and education.
Fellows develop clinical expertise in symptom assessment and management as well as advanced communication skills with patients, families, and other health care providers. Fellows graduate highly capable of entering Palliative careers in the ambulatory, hospice, nursing home and/or hospital settings.
