Department of Medicine

Admissions - Hematology Oncology Fellowship


Application Requirements


Fellowship candidates must have completed internal medicine residency in the United States with a record of excellence. Fellows must have passed the USMLE examinations and must be board eligible for the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Our program is highly competitive, and candidates with excellent performance and strong letters of recommendation are invited to interview. We accept U.S. citizens, green card holders, and candidates with J1 visas. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept candidates holding H1 visas.


Application Information


Fellows must submit their exam scores and four letters of recommendation, including one from their program director. Applicants may apply to the program from July 1 through August 30 for a start date of July 1 the following year. Interviews are held September through October of the year before starting fellowship.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the interview experience will be completely virtual.  In an effort to replicate the in-person experience, the planned interview session will include an informational session that provides an in-depth overview of our program, a virtual tour of our facilities, participation in one of our fellows’ teaching conference, individual interviews with faculty members, and a meet and greet with our current fellows.
