Georgetown's Hematology and Oncology Fellowship Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for subspecialty training and offers a three-year program leading to eligibility for both subspecialty certifying examinations.

Our fellows flourish in an atmosphere of excellence in both clinical care and cutting edge clinical and basic research. Fellows spend about half of their clinical time during fellowship in a disease-specific clinic setting, and are expected to present frequently on topics of interest. In this setting, with an understanding of the mechanisms that underlie cancer development and drug activity, fellows acquire a solid foundation for patient care as well as for the integration of future developments in patient care.

The graduates of our program have entered all areas of hematology and medical oncology. About half of our fellows enter private practice, and half pursue an academic career. Some graduates have also entered government or industry. The division has also developed the career of some of its fellows by appointment to the Georgetown faculty.
