The Houston Methodist Hematology-Oncology Fellowship is an ACGME-accredited program designed to shape future leaders in hematology and oncology through comprehensive education and intensive training in clinical practice and research. The three-year program fully integrates the ACGME core competencies and milestones through a required set of rotations, a didactic curriculum and elective rotations designed to broaden the base of knowledge. Located in the Texas Medical Center, we have exposure to a diverse patient population. All training takes place within the Houston Methodist Hospital ranked as number one hospital in Texas and connected facilities in the Texas Medical Center.
We recognize that next generations of competent hematologists and oncologists need to be fortified with diverse range of knowledge and competencies, including cancer prevention, clinical cancer genetics, health policy, cost-effective evidence-based patient care, along with translational and clinical research experience. Our fellows are given the structure and supervision required to ensure that each are well-trained, competent hematologists and oncologists, and are given guidance and mentorship to realize their individual professional goals and aspirations.
