The fellowship program holds two or three didactic lectures per week in various hematological and oncological subjects given by faculty and experts in the field. In addition to these lectures, fellows participate in journal clubs, morbidity and mortality conferences, board review, and peripheral smear conferences.
All fellows have the opportunity to attend and submit abstracts and research to national conferences such as the American Society of Hematology (ASH), the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), and many other conferences.
Every week, fellows are expected to participate in a very robust series of tumor boards to enhance the system-based approach to multidisciplinary cancer care. In addition to tumor boards, every month the department has a research conference, where all active and future research protocols are discussed.
