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.
Applicants must have completed an accredited fellowship in Hematology/Oncology by the start date of the H.J. Khoury Fellowship. Applicants must also be eligible for licensure as an MD, and for a DEA license in Georgia.
