Curriculum

Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship

The three-year hematology oncology fellowship program at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville is designed to provide a robust clinical experience in the broad discipline of hematology and oncology so that each fellow will be prepared for either private practice or an academic career.

The program will lead to eligibility in both hematology and oncology subspecialty-certifying examinations. The program strives to produce excellent hematologists and oncologists. We expect this goal to be accomplished through monitored teaching exposure to a wide array of hospital/ambulatory care patient conditions and tumor boards. Fellows are given the opportunity to experience both academic and private practice settings with rotations at UF Health Jacksonville, UF Health Proton Therapy Institute and Mayo Clinic Hospital in Florida.
