  • Description

    The fellowship is an intensive one-year program in malignant hematology, stem cell transplantation, and cellular therapy. The Fellow will have clinical responsibilities (inpatient and outpatient), dedicated research time, and mentorship to allow for professional development. The goal of the training is to prepare fellows for junior faculty positions.

     

    The Fellow will complete six weeks as the attending physician on inpatient services, dividing their time among the Leukemia (4 weeks) and Bone Marrow Transplant-Cellular Therapy (2 weeks) services. The Fellow will be paired with faculty mentors to provide guidance and directed learning. When not on the inpatient service, fellows will have 2 half-day clinics per week. During which, the fellow will see patients with: AML, ALL, CML, MDS, and MPNs. Fellows will see and prepare a management plan independently, but will be paired with faculty mentors to provide guidance. The aim and expectation is for the fellow to acquire patients with leukemias/myeloid disorders, gaining enhanced expertise in management of these complex diseases, including hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and cellular therapies (CAR T-cells, vaccines). The H.J. Khoury fellow will also design and complete a research project in their chosen area, and will participate in the education of our Hematology/Oncology fellows and other trainees.

     

    Objectives:

    • Attend on the inpatient Leukemia and Bone Marrow Transplant/Cellular Therapy services and become proficient in the inpatient management of these complex patients.
    • Develop needed skills to become competent in the management of hematologic malignancies including acute and chronic leukemias, myelodysplastic syndromes, and myeloproliferative neoplasms, in the outpatient setting.
    • Gain an understanding of the principles of allogeneic stem cell transplantation and management of acute and chronic GVHD.
    • Create a research proposal and engage in additional educational opportunities to expand their research portfolio (i.e. ASH CRTI Clinical Trials Workshop).
    • Rotate with Transplant Infectious disease services and participate in weekly Hemato-pathology sign out rounds.
    • Engage fellows and trainees and give educational lectures throughout the year.
