Hematology/Oncology Fellowship

Hematology / Oncology Fellowship

The Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital is a fully accredited ACGME 3 year program with an emphasis on diverse clinical and research opportunities in benign hematology, malignant hematology, pediatric oncology and pediatric bone marrow transplantation with an emphasis in academic medicine. The program leadership includes Dr. Fernando F Corrales-Medina, MD, Program Director and Dr. Joanna A Davis, Associate Program Director.

Our Institution is home to the world-class University of Miami-Sylvester Cancer Center, a large Sickle Cell Program and The University of Miami-Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC), the only federally supported HTC in South Florida. Clinical and bench research opportunities are available under the close mentorship of one of the Faculty members within the UM-Jackson Medical Center.

One of the main goals of the Program is that all Fellows are exposed to basic lab/bench research during the 3 years. Scholarly activity is emphasized and there is global support for fellow-initiated clinical projects, academic journal submissions, etc. In addition, Second year Fellows attend a 6 month didactic course covering the basics of scholarly activity within an academic milieu. The Fellow also serves as the inpatient attending (with supervision) at the end of the third year, as a benchmark opportunity to demonstrate clinical competence and potential for independent practice.

Our program accepts 1 fellow yearly through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).
