Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program

Welcome from the Fellowship Director

Thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Training Program at the Warren Alpert School Medical School of Brown University.  The mission of our program is train physicians to provide compassionate care for children and young adults with cancer and blood disorders.

Our program develops skilled clinicians with experience in research methodology and scholarship opportunities.  We aim to train the next generation of clinical and research leaders in pediatric hematology and oncology.

The program is based at Hasbro Children’s Hospital, a tertiary care children’s hospital serving a medically complex patient population in a diverse and urban setting. As the only children’s hospital in the state, we serve patients from Rhode Island, Eastern Connecticut, and Southeast Massachusetts.  Our academic relationship with Brown University provides a rich resource for education and research.

We are a clinically well-rounded program with a diversity and depth of experience reflective of the complex and evolving nature of the field.  Fellows in our program have the opportunity to participate in selected coursework within the Brown University School of Public Health.  There are numerous opportunities for scholarly activity within our division, the department and the medical school.  Our fellows have found success in basic and translational research efforts as well as clinical, medical education and public health focused projects.

Through our participation in international cooperative groups and industry sponsored clinical trials, our trainees are exposed to state-of-the-art clinical research for patients in pediatric hematology and oncology.  Our faculty have a broad range of backgrounds and interests and are involved in national and international disease-specific efforts.  Additionally, we are proud to offer a faculty-to-fellow ratio that supports individualized learning and ensures access to consistent clinical, educational and research mentorship during fellowship training. 

We firmly believe in work-life balance. Rhode Island is a wonderful place to live and is recognized for its outstanding quality of life.  Housing is reasonably priced and the commutes are easy.   Ocean beaches and inland woods, professional sport teams and philharmonic orchestras, shopping and fantastic restaurants are all close by – just like everything in the smallest state in the union.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.  We look forward to receiving your application.

With best wishes,
