Hematology and Oncology Fellowship at Mount Sinai

The Mount Sinai Hematology/Medical Oncology Fellowship Program is dedicated to the training, mentoring and career development of superb clinicians, outstanding critical thinkers and future academic leaders in Hematology and Medical Oncology. As of July 1, 2017, the Mount Sinai Beth Israel and Mount Sinai Hospital programs merged to form a single fellowship within the Mount Sinai Health System. Our combined Hematology/Medical Oncology training program is 36 months in duration and consists of 2 fellowship tracks based on individual career goals: 1)Investigator track and 2)Master Clinician track. 

Fellows in the Investigator track have 18 months of clinical rotations and 18 months of protected, mentored research time. During the dedicated research time, fellows choose a mentor and are guided through the process of developing a research project.  Our expectation is that fellow research projects will result in training grants and other funding to allow trainees to further develop their interests and foster careers as academic leaders.  Ideal candidates are trainees who are planning academic career with a focus in lab, translational, clinical trials, outcomes or medical education research.  

Fellows in the Master Clinician track have 30 months of clinical rotations and 6 months of protected, mentored research time. Ideal Master Clinician candidates are trainees seeking superior clinical training with a career goal of community practice or academic medicine with an emphasis on clinical care, clinical research, quality improvement research and/or medical education. 

Clinical rotations across both tracks are dedicated to providing a broad exposure to the clinical practice of the field through both, inpatient and outpatient rotations.  Rotations have been formulated to provide maximal educational content and to promote scholarly academic discussion and debate among fellows, faculty and allied health professionals. 

The Hematology/Medical Oncology Fellowship Program is composed of an education model consisting of mandatory clinical rotations, robust educational programming, and strong guidance and career development in research. The combination of these offers fellows unprecedented levels of mentorship and guidance during their training.
