Division Chief and Fellowship Program Director, Hematology/Oncology
Thank you for visiting the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Hematology/Oncology and BMT Fellowship website.  I look forward to sharing information with you about our program, which is designed to train the future academic leaders in our field.  We provide outstanding training and mentorship in clinical care, and the extraordinarily rich research environment of our Division, our Department of Pediatrics, our University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and our University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine affords virtually limitless opportunities for our trainees.
 
Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh provides a comprehensive and balanced clinical experience.  We are consistently ranked as one of the best Children’s Hospitals in the nation with all subspecialties represented.  We are the only dedicated children's hospital in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area, and we also serve a wide geographic region outside of Pittsburgh, including the Western half of Pennsylvania and portions of Ohio, West Virginia and New York.  This large catchment area leads to extensive exposure to both common and rare hematologic and oncologic disorders of children, adolescents and young adults.  
 
We are excited to share with you the wealth of research opportunities that are offered to our Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Fellows.  We are proud to provide excellent and diverse mentorship and support to those interested in clinical research, including the option of completing master’s level training during fellowship through our Institute for Clinical Research Education (ICRE).  For those interested in basic laboratory research, a broad range of training experiences are available, including those within the Division of Hematology Oncology as well as throughout the larger university community of collaborative research.
 
Our Fellowship Program is rooted in a strong, collaborative relationship among the fellows and faculty.   We work as a team to provide state-of-the art care for our patients, advance our field through cutting edge research, and train the best and brightest pediatric hematologists and oncologists who will lead us to a future of improved understanding and treatment of hematologic and oncologic disease.
 
Please explore our website to find further information about our fellowship program including clinical care, research opportunities, didactic curriculum and information about our fellow alumni. 
 
Please feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions about our program.
