Why Choose the UW Hematology & Oncology Fellowship?
Outstanding Patient Care
We are affiliated with the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center, the only comprehensive cancer center in Wisconsin. We are also affiliated with the American Family Children’s Hospital, which admits patients from Wisconsin, Illinois and beyond; and houses our 16-bed inpatient service, adjacent PICU, four bone marrow transplant beds and an I-131 MIBG radiotherapy suite (see Facts and Figures).
A World-Class Research Institution
We are a fully accredited member center of numerous national pediatric hematology and oncology consortia, and participate in pediatric phase I, II, and III clinical trials offered through those groups and by the University of Wisconsin. We are also one of seven centers on a Pediatric Cancer “Dream Team,” as awarded by Stand Up to Cancer, St. Baldrick’s Foundation and the American Association of Cancer Research.
Individualized Education and Mentoring
Our faculty work one-on-one with fellows during all phases of training. Fellows prepare and present our tumor board, core curriculum and journal club sessions in close collaboration with faculty. Fellows also take charge of inpatient rounds and teach students, residents and other staff.
