Trainees are introduced to Hematology/Oncology through clinical teaching on the wards and in clinics, as well as clinical and basic science lectures and conferences directed by faculty. Fellows also participate in clinical or laboratory research under faculty supervision.. Only a handful of students enter the program each year.
