Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship

The Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology provides an unsurpassed opportunity for clinical fellowship training. Children’s Health℠ Children’s Medical Center, the primary pediatric teaching hospital, is the principal site for clinical training of our fellows. Directly adjacent to the UT Southwestern Medical Center campus, this hospital is consistently ranked as one of the nation's finest children's hospitals by U.S. News and World Report. Importantly, its proximity to UT Southwestern allows clinical fellows to easily move between clinical and research training venues during their fellowship.

The Division prides itself on an atmosphere that welcomes new ideas, change, and creativity for fellowship education. The overall goals and objectives for pediatric hematology/oncology fellows are to gain extensive experience in the diagnosis and ongoing care of children with cancer and hematologic disorders, and to become researchers and teachers of pediatric hematology/oncology.

Fellow Research

Our Division includes physician scientists with funded and successful clinical and laboratory research programs. We provide the opportunity to obtain clinical, translational, or basic laboratory research training at an institution that hosts a dazzling array of world renowned investigators, including distinguished faculty who are Nobel laureates and many who are members of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Medicine, and Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Learn about our current fellows’ research.

Many of our fellows receive clinical research training and many graduates of the UT Southwestern Clinical Research Scholars Program are Division faculty members.

UT Southwestern has an NIH-sponsored Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) and provides opportunities for clinical research training in a Department of Population & Data Sciences that has become the model for institutions across the nation.
