About The Fellowship Program

The goal of this Fellowship Program is to offer a three program of comprehensive training in Hematology and Medical Oncology that will allow Fellows to enter a career of private practice or to pursue a career in academic medicine.

The curriculum provides comprehensive training in the ACGME Core Competencies related to the medical subspecialties of Hematology and Medical Oncology, and fosters research opportunities. The Program uses the facilities and faculties at Roger Williams Medical Center, as well as affiliated teaching hospitals in Providence, including Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island, the Veterans Administration Medical Center, Rhode Island Hospital and Women and Infants Hospital of RI.

There are a total of 6 Fellows, 2 in each year of the program. They are taught by RWMC Faculty during rotations emphasizing Inpatient Care and Consultations, and Ambulatory Hematology/Oncology. Each fellow has a Longitudinal Clinic at one of the hospitals, where they follow a cohort of patients throughout the entire 3-year period. More-focused Second Site clinics are scheduled in 3-6 month blocks for experience in benign and malignant Hematology, Women’s cancers (Breast & GYN), Thoracic cancers, Gastro-intestinal cancers, CNS cancers and Genito-urinary cancers.
