Application procedure and selection process

Individuals with M.D., M.D./Ph.D., or D.O. training who are interested in an academic career in pediatric hematology-oncology are encouraged to apply. The applicant must be in or have completed an ACGME-accredited general pediatrics or combined medicine/pediatrics residency and have passed the USMLE steps 1 and 2.

Due to the rigorous clinical demands of our fellowship program, ACGME-accredited residency training is a prerequisite for acceptance, as this ensures proficiency in performing within the United States medical system.

In order for our trainees to be board-eligible in pediatric hematology/oncology at the end of their fellowship training, they must first be board-certified in general pediatrics through the American Academy of Pediatrics. Baylor College of Medicine does accept applicants with J1 visas, but not those with H1B visas.

The Texas Children’s Hospital / Baylor College of Medicine program accepts up to 6 fellows each year. Applicants are accepted based on their potential to become successful academic subspecialists. The program accepts applications for the 3-year ACGME-accredited Pediatric Hematology-Oncology fellowship program through ERAS. Interviews are offered to selected prospective candidates. Candidates are ranked and matched to our program through the NRMP.

How to apply for the Hematology-Oncology Fellowship

For questions regarding eligibility and the application process, please contact Carrie Will, the fellowship coordinator, at 832-822-4207, cjwill@texaschildrens.org, or the fellowship director, Dr. YoungNa Lee-Kim, at yjleekim@texaschildrens.org.
