Education & Training

For fellows pursuing pediatric hematology and oncology, the Division of Hematology, Oncology and Marrow and Blood Cell Transplantation at the Children’s Hospital of Montefiore (CHAM) is a great place to learn. 


The CHAM Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Program
Comprehensive and ACGME-accredited, this three-year fellowship training program clinically and intellectually challenges the next generation of pediatric hematology and oncology clinician-scientists. Receiving superior training from seasoned faculty supported by an NIH-funded Hematology Program in oncological and hematological clinical care, fellows conduct clinical, translational, and basic science research. CHAM allows fellows the opportunity to learn at a dynamic children’s hospital with a well-respected medical school and a broad-based patient population. 

A Multifaceted and Prestigious Program
CHAM is the only medical center in the area that provides multi-disciplinary care for children with cancer and complex blood disorders. Fellows see and newly diagnose patients with a wide variety of illnesses at all stages. The Albert Einstein Cancer Center (AECC) and the Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology actively collaborate, along with the Children’s Oncology Group and other cancer consortiums, providing fellows with insight into varied cases. One of the largest programs of its kind in the region, the comprehensive Sickle Cell Disease program cares for over 700 children and families with the disease—providing rich research and clinical opportunities to fellows. The fellowship program provides a unique balance of patient interaction and research opportunities, creating a hands-on learning experience for future academic physician-scientists.

A Chance to Work with Esteemed Faculty 
CHAM’s fellowship program allows students the opportunity to train with leading medical professionals in the Hematology and Oncology fields. Fellows will work alongside the chief of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology and Vice Chairman of Pediatrics at CHAM, as well as ten other esteemed doctors with notable backgrounds of experience and research. Students will gain rare, valuable insight into the hematology and oncology fields. Our dedicated staff provides trainees with a unique opportunity to learn directly from acclaimed superiors in a supportive training environment. 

An Emphasis on Fellow Publications and Skill-Building
Throughout the course of study, fellowship program leadership tailors each trainee’s fellowship opportunity to his or her interests and career goals. A diverse group of outstanding, NIH-funded research mentors provided by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (AECM) help guide fellows’ studies and foster their academic success. First year fellows develop clinical expertise in hematology, oncology, and stem cell transplantation, while second and third year fellows focus on developing skills in clinical, translational, and basic science research. 

Meeting the Needs of Fellows and Patients
Combining a dynamic children’s hospital, a highly-respected medical school, a diverse patient population, and a dedicated faculty with the support of an NCI Cancer Center and an NIH-funded Hematology Program, the Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Fellowship Training Program meets CHAM’s dual goals: to provide excellent care to patients, and to train outstanding and independent pediatric hematologists-oncologists. 

A Pathway to Future Success
The superior faculty Fellow Publications provided by the fellowship program offers a wealth of opportunities for young medical professionals in their future careers. Our seasoned faculty is committed to providing the highest level of support and guidance for trainees, allowing them to achieve outstanding accomplishments both academically and clinically after completing the program. Fellows will have the chance to work with award-winning doctors in teaching and leadership roles. Many of our fellows have published manuscripts, presented at national conventions, and attained academic positions after completing the program.
