The Hematology and Oncology Fellowship Training Program at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center is a fully integrated three-year program that offers comprehensive training in hematology, oncology, and stem cell transplantation. Completion of the program prepares fellows for the subspecialty board examinations in hematology and oncology and for competitive career placement in both the academic and private setting.
The program’s goal is to provide a comprehensive, rigorous clinical training experience in the fields of hematology and oncology, with an emphasis on evidence-based clinical care. Throughout their training, fellows will encounter a broad range of clinical disease on their rotations and electives. In addition they will also engage in scholarly research projects and performance improvement initiatives at each of the medical centers in this program. By the end of their fellowship, our fellows will be well-prepared in diagnosing, treating, and caring for a broad range of complex hematologic and oncologic conditions in a diverse patient population across a variety of health care systems.
What Makes Us Different
- Olive View-UCLA is a public hospital where our fellows work with an under-served population that generally lacks regular medical access. Consequently, fellows are involved in both the initial diagnosis and subsequent treatment plans for these patients. In addition, our unique continuity clinic in hematology and oncology allows our fellows to develop strong, personal relationships with their patients as they follow their progress through therapy.
- At Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute, our fellows work with world-class experts in stem cell transplant, solid oncology, and phase I research. During their rotations they are exposed to the latest diagnostic and treatment modalities.
- Finally in the second and third year, our fellows are able to refine their clinical skills at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center. Their experience at the flagship hospital of Kaiser’s southern California HMO network, exposes them to a broad variety of both hematologic and oncologic cases.
- The most important part of our program are the people. Our faculty loves teaching and is extremely interested in providing the education and resources to help our fellows excel during their training. In addition, the camaraderie and friendship among the fellows results in a supportive and strong training environment for our fellowship program.
