Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship

Fellowship Programs

The mission of our Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Training Program at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD) is to develop the knowledge base, clinical experiences, professional skills, research exposure and teaching ability for a graduating fellow to assume the duties and responsibilities of an academic attending pediatric hematologist/oncologist.

CCBD has the largest pediatric cancer program in Arizona — approximately 200 new oncology patients diagnosed per year — and is a leading participant in research to find cures for cancer. The center is a long-standing member of the Children's Oncology Group (COG), and there are currently more than 50 COG clinical research trials open for enrollment at Phoenix Children's.

We also participate in ongoing clinical trials administered by the Histiocyte Society and pharmaceutical trials for the treatment of hemophilia. We are one of only two institutions in Arizona — and the only location in Phoenix — conducting Phase I trials which gives pediatric cancer patients access to the newest treatments available.

The three-year fellowship training program received accreditation by the ACGME. There are two fellowship positions available per year.
