The subspecialty resident will spend one (1) half-day each week in the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology clinic throughout all 3 years of training. The half-day will be one morning each week and will be assigned during the first year of fellowship.
- It may be moved to a different day during the 2nd and 3rd year
- Alternative sites, such as satellite clinics are allowable during this time and may replace the continuity clinic during the week that they occur
- One half-day each month will be spent doing procedures in the 2nd and 3rd years of fellowship and will replace the fellow’s weekly continuity clinic for that week
Fellows will be expected to establish a relationship and follow a diverse panel of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology patients that have presented to them on the wards or in the clinic. Working alongside a full-time faculty member, and with advanced practice providers, medical students, rotating housestaff, nurses, and other health care personnel of the inter-disciplinary team, the fellow will manage their patients with presumed and established hematological and oncological diagnoses.
Fellows will have their own clinic schedule template to which their continuity clinic patients will be assigned.
The fellow’s role and responsibilities will progressively become greater through the course of the fellowship as their knowledge, skill, and experience increases.
