Hematology, Oncology and Transplantation Fellowship
The Fellowship Training Program Hematology, Medical Oncology and Transplantation is directed by Yvonne Datta, MD, Professor of Medicine. The major goal of the Fellowship Training Program is to train physicians for independent and productive academic or clinical careers. Leading to dual-board eligibility in hematology and medical oncology, the three-year program emphasizes clinical training in all areas of hematology, oncology, and transplantation, along with developing the skills needed for a successful academic career in basic or clinical/population outcomes research. The training program is flexible and customized according to the needs and interests of the individual fellow.
Clinical training is obtained on in-patient and out-patient hematology and medical oncology services and the blood and marrow transplant service at the University of Minnesota-Fairview Medical Center and the hematology and medical oncology consult and ambulatory services at affiliated hospitals which include the Veterans Administration Medical Center (VAMC), Regions Hospital, and Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC). Clinical training is also obtained in continuity out-patient clinics at all training sites.
The basic and clinical research in the Division of Hematology, Oncology, and Transplantation provides diverse opportunities for experience in investigational treatment, protocol development and analysis, as well as the performance of sophisticated laboratory techniques. There is also an opportunity for eligible fellows to obtain a masters degree in Clinical Research through the School of Public Health.
