Chief's Message

Our Fellowship Program is an ACGME / ABIM approved combined three-year program that will allows graduates to become ABIM board eligible in the subspecialties of hematology and medical oncology. Didactic teaching sessions, case presentation conferences and tumor boards foster multidisciplinary interaction among faculty and staff enhancing the training program.  The Division is active in educational programs and research mentorship within the College of Medicine and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Clinical, translational and basic science research in collaboration with various multidisciplinary clinics, promises to provide a bench-to-bedside approach to treatment and discovery as well as an opportunity for high quality one-stop-care for the patients and superb training for oncologists of the future. Prevention, early detection and multimodality individualized therapy of cancer will take us closer to our one goal – eradication.
