The mission of the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Training Program at the Phoenix Children's Hospital Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCBD) is to train pediatric hematologist/oncologists who provide hope, healing, and the best family-centered care, and who incorporate innovative research, advance medical education, and advocate for children.  The Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders and the Bone Marrow Transplant Program, in coordination with Mayo Clinic Arizona, is a center of excellence and is honored annually by US News and World Report as a Best Children’s Hospital.  Phoenix Children’s Hospital is one of top ten largest Children’s Hospitals in the United States, and the CCBD is the largest pediatric cancer program in Arizona with greater than 350 new oncology patients diagnosed per year.  The center is a long-standing member of the Children's Oncology Group (COG) and currently has more than 100 clinical trials available for patients with leukemias, lymphomas, solid tumors, brain tumors, multiple rare cancers and cancer-like disorders.  We have a robust hematology program, covering the spectrum of benign hematologic disorders, sickle cell disease, hemostasis and thrombosis.  Our bone marrow transplant program has one of the lowest mortality rates in the nation. We are a multidisciplinary group with dedicated nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, inpatient hospitalists, social workers, nutritionists, psychologists, and child life specialists.
