Board Certification Requirements

The Hematology/Oncology training program is designed to provide comprehensive training in all clinical aspects of Hematology/Oncology, as well as an in-depth experience in a defined area of research. Fellows who complete the program are capable of pursuing an academic career in Hematology or Medical Oncology, or both. The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) currently requires three (3) years of combined Hematology-Oncology training to achieve dual board certification in both Hematology and Medical Oncology.

To pursue board certification in both subspecialties, their three (3) years of fellowship require at least eighteen (18) months of clinical training equally divided between Hematology and Oncology. The rest of the 18 months of training will be divided into research and other clinical activities or electives depending on the goals and interests of the fellow.
