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. During this 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. 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

Please note we are not accepting observerships at this time due to our dedication to the upcoming recruitment season. 




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