The Hematology-Oncology Division and the Department of Medicine at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak offers a three year program in fellowship training for combined board eligibility in hematology-oncology. Our program is fully accredited by the ACGME and the ABIM. To be eligible for consideration, fellows must have completed training in internal medicine at an ACGME accredited institution and be board eligible at the time of entering our fellowship program. Our fellowship program emphasizes clinical training as well as clinical research.
The fellowship program is built on the six core competencies
- practice-based learning and improvement
- patient care
- interpersonal and communication skills
- medical knowledge
- systems-based practice
The overall objective is to provide all the resources for fellows to master the art and science of caring for patients with cancer and blood disorders. We advance the knowledge of clinical and basic research, and help develop skills for lifelong learning and continued growth in hematology-oncology following graduation from the program. Also, by participation in clinical trials, fellows will learn the standard of care for patients locally and nationally. Through translational research they will learn the application of new basic laboratory knowledge through patient care.
The hematology-oncology fellowship program seeks to train physicians in a very compassionate and caring setting. The fellows will learn the art of communication with patients and other healthcare professionals. They will also obtain the necessary skills to control pain and care for patients at the end of their life.
