Training and Curriculum

The Duke Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program trains fellows to provide outstanding clinical training in all areas of hematology and medical oncology. Conferences make up a core part of fellows’ training.

Throughout their training, fellows provide patient care in a longitudinal clinic at the Durham VA hematology-oncology clinic. Fellows spend their first year undergoing intensive clinical training, participating on nine rotations.

During their second year, fellows continue learning the scientific basis of hematology, hematopoiesis, and cancer pathogenesis, diagnosis and management; they also begin a research project they will finish their third year.

In their third year, fellows continue developing their professional ability to practice hematology and medical oncology independently and competently, spending at least 25 percent of their time in clinical training.
