Program Overview

The University of Florida Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program provides a comprehensive clinical and research experience that is tailored to the fellow’s career goals. Through research focus selection, fellows in the second and third year follow an individualized learning plan that is consistent with their career goals.

The first year of fellowship provides a foundation of clinical experiences, primarily focused in the inpatient setting.  This builds a fund of knowledge about the diagnosis and management of a wide variety of hematologic and oncologic disorders.  Each fellow maintains a weekly continuity clinic at the North Florida/South Georgia VA Hospital consisting of a panel of their own patients.  All first year fellows, with the assistance of program leadership and a selected mentor(s), will embark upon a personalized career development plan consistent with their stated career goals.

The second and third year of fellowship offer more flexibility in rotation and clinic assignment so as to maximize exposure to areas of interest and needs based on research projects and career goals.  In addition to core clinical rotations, fellows will tailor clinical elective time to gain additional experience in areas of interest. Fellows will have additional dedicated research time allotted based on complexity of their projects as determined by our Fellowship Program Education Committee.  All fellows continue to see their own patient panel in their weekly VA continuity clinic.

Additional educational activities include a wide variety of weekly conferences including tumor boards, didactic conferences, case-based clinical conference, board review and UF Cancer Center Grand rounds.
