Goals and Strengths
Our fellowship program, the largest ACGME-accredited training program within our subspecialty and among the finest in the nation, is located in the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical complex in the world.
The Baylor College of Medicine Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program is a highly-structured educational program with comprehensive, individualized clinical and research mentorship that offers a robust and varied clinical experience in both hematology and oncology.
The primary goal of our program is to provide fellows an opportunity to develop clinical expertise and the research skills necessary to become successful, independent clinical or laboratory investigators. Upon completion of this ACGME-accredited training program, fellows will meet the subspecialty certification requirements of the American Board of Pediatrics for pediatric hematology-oncology. This comprehensive clinical and research training program is ideal for candidates who wish to pursue a career in academic pediatric hematology-oncology.
Our training program draws on the strengths of its association with Texas Children’s Hospital, the largest children’s hospital in the country, and Baylor College of Medicine Department of Pediatrics, which ranks first in the United States in NIH funding among departments of Pediatrics. Situated within Houston’s Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world, the program offers numerous opportunities for laboratory and clinical research.
