Pediatric Hematology / Oncology Fellowship
The mission of the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Training Program at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD) at Phoenix Children's Hospital (PCH) is to develop the knowledge base, clinical experiences, professional skills, research exposure, and teaching ability that are necessary for a graduating fellow to assume the duties and responsibilities of an academic attending pediatric hematologist/oncologist.
The CCBD has the largest pediatric cancer program in Arizona (approximately 280 new oncology patients diagnosed per year) and is a leading participant in research to find cures for cancer. The Center is a long-standing member of the Children's Oncology Group (COG), and there are currently over 50 COG clinical research trials open for enrollment at Phoenix Children's.
Phoenix Children's also participates in ongoing clinical trials administered by the Histiocyte Society and pharmaceutical trials for the treatment of hemophilia. Phoenix Children's is one of two institutions in Arizona – and the only location in Phoenix – conducting Phase I trials, giving pediatric cancer patients access to the newest treatments available.
The three-year fellowship training program received accreditation by the ACGME. There are two fellowship positions available per year.
