Dear Prospective Fellow:

Thank you for expressing interest in the Baylor College of Medicine Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Training Program at Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Center. 

Our program is one of the country’s top Pediatric Hematology-Oncology fellowships, and the vast majority of our graduates have gone on to highly successful academic, research, and clinical careers. We have a remarkably comprehensive program that offers superb clinical and research training. 

Our program is oriented to developing Pediatric Hematologist-Oncologists who wish to pursue an academic career, either in clinical or laboratory research. It is most appropriately conceptualized as a “faculty training” program. A number of features, including a structured mentorship program and comprehensive leadership training, distinguish our fellowship as one uniquely geared to educating future leaders in the field.

Our fellows are taught by highly experienced faculty in an exciting clinical setting at Texas Children’s Hospital, the nation’s largest children’s hospital. As a fellow, you will join a medical and academic community that sets the standard of excellence in patient care, research, and education. You will be trained by caring, dedicated faculty in a collegial, friendly, and supportive environment. 

We hope that after learning about us, you will consider becoming part of the Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Center family!
