The Division of Hematology and Oncology offers an ACGME-accredited postgraduate fellowship training program designed to prepare trainees to evaluate, understand, and manage complex hematological and oncological disorders.

Program Details

The comprehensive combined training program prepares fellows for independent clinical practice and eligibility for the ABIM subspecialty board examinations. In addition to rigorous clinical training, the program strives to create an atmosphere of scientific curiosity and endeavor. Both Augusta University Health and the Georgia Cancer Center training sites offer a wide breadth of clinical and research experience. The program boasts a diverse tumor-specific clinical core-faculty dedicated to teaching, an aggressive didactic program, and a plethora of research opportunities with world-renowned researchers at the Georgia Cancer Center, the Hemophilia Treatment Center, and Sickle Cell Center.

The program accepts three individuals annually.

The main aims of the program are: to provide comprehensive training in the evaluation and management of patients with cancer, leading to board eligibility in the subspecialties of Medical Oncology and Hematology; and to provide trainees with the option of tumor-specific clinical training or a path to clinician-scientist/translational-researcher based on their chosen career path in clinical or academic medicine.
