The ACGME-accredited Ochsner Hematology Oncology Fellowship is a three year training program offering dual-specialty training. We accept three positions in each first-year class. Fellows spend a majority of their time in clinical training, with 3-6 months spent in mentored research. In addition, there is ongoing experience in the hematologic malignancies/stem cell transplant program, both inpatient and outpatient. Fellows participate in both blood bank and hematopathology activities.
Our program aim is to train fellows to become expert clinicians in an environment of inquiry and continuous improvement. We educate fellows in the performance of clinical and or translational research so that they may accurately interpret the medical literature and so that they can perform scholarly activity that contributes meaningfully to the progress of hematology and oncology as a field.
