Core Paediatric General Haematology/Oncology

Training also includes in-depth exposure to haematopathology (morphology, flow  cytometry, cytogenetics, molecular  genetics, blood  bank  and  transfusion, special haematology, and coagulation), adult haematology, radiation oncology, and palliative care and symptom management. Finally, opportunities  exist  to  gain  further  experience  through  electives in areas such as diagnostic imaging, pathology and many others. Teaching occurs in both outpatient and inpatient settings, in addition to protected weekly Academic Half-Days, Continuity Clinics, multiple subspecialty rounds, lectures and seminars.

The focus of  the first  two years of this program is to gain clinical  expertise in the subspecialty of Paediatric Haematology/Oncology and to begin to formulate scholarly ideas and proposals (basic science, translational, clinical, medical education and quality improvement).

The third year focuses on completing scholarly activities and pursuing further training in individual areas of interest. Successful  candidates  are  fully  funded  during  their 3-years of training. Clinical duties include outpatient  and  inpatient  care, as  well  as  on-call coverage for general haematology/oncology and bone marrow transplantation and cellular therapy.
