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, of which 18 months 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 discussion and debate among fellows, faculty and allied health professionals.

The second 18 months of the fellowship program is devoted to protected, mentored research time. By the end of the first year of fellowship, fellows identify an area of interest and a mentor. During their research time, fellows learn skills relevant to their area of research interest and conduct one or more longitudinal research projects in that area. Ultimately, graduating fellows will have a portfolio of written and presented work and will be equipped to apply for mentored (and ultimately independent) grant funding and establish careers as independent investigators. Fellows can choose to focus in basic science, translational, clinical trials, outcomes, quality improvement, or medical education research.  

Mount Sinai also offers a 1 year long Stem Cell Transplant and Cellular Therapy Fellowship. For more information regarding this program and the requirements for application, please click here.
