Pediatric Hematology Oncology Fellowship Program

Application Information

Eligibility Criteria

  • Completed or currently enrolled in US Pediatric Residency Program
  • Passing scores on all USMLE steps (must pass all steps prior to admission to fellowship)
  • Commitment to a career in academic medicine

    NOTE: Due to the number of positions in our program supported by an NIH NCI T32 training grant, the majority of our trainees must be U.S. citizens or green card holders. We will consider applications from J-1 visa-holders, but those positions are limited. We do not sponsor H1B visa applications.

How to Apply

Applications for the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology fellowship program commencing July 7, 2020 must be made through ERAS.

We require a minimum of three letters of recommendation with one to come from your residency program director and request that your personal statement be one page in length and describe your career goals. Applicants must also register with the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

Please be sure all requested materials are part of your ERAS file at the time you submit your application to ERAS so the reviewers will have access to complete information about you. 

Application Deadline: July 31, 2019

Applications submitted after the 7/31 deadline will generally not be considered.

Interview Process

We will offer approximately six group interview dates in September and October 2019. Dates will be posted at the start of recruiting season.

We will schedule up to four people for each group interview date.
The interview day will start at 8:00am, and generally ends no later than 4:30pm.

We will provide up to two night’s accommodation.
There will be an informal gathering the evening prior to the interview day.

Please submit questions to Maya Luzzi.


We are one of the longest standing NCI-funded pediatric training programs. Our Fellowship Program is funded by a T32 training grant from the National Cancer Institute. The initial year of fellowship funding and funding required beyond that supported by the T32 training grant are provided through institutional sources and the generosity of the Kiwanis Childhood Cancer Program.

Fellows supported by a T32 training grant have a unique benefit package, e.g. they are not eligible to participate in the University retirement plan or flexible spending accounts, and taxation rules vary.


We believe that the diversity of our fellows, residents, medical students, staff and faculty is a fundamental element of our ability to ensure that all our patients and families receive the highest-quality care – no matter their race, ethnicity, language, literacy, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability or finances. Our objective is to create a community that encourages participation and connection, and that values and includes each individual's unique contribution, in every aspect of our mission and practice.
