From the Program Directors
Welcome to UNC!
We’re looking for motivated and curious applicants who want to train in a stimulating and collegial environment. For more than 40 years our team has proudly trained experts, leaders, and (above all) colleagues in pediatric hematology-oncology.
UNC fellows train in a world-class public hospital, where they encounter the full scope of our specialty:
- Our pediatric oncology clinic sees more than 100 new diagnoses per year.
- UNC’s registered Hemophilia Treatment Center and hemostasis/thrombosis clinic see more than 200 children with bleeding and clotting disorders.
- Our Comprehensive Sickle Cell Program provides care to more than 400 children with sickle cell disease and other hemoglobin disorders.
- The Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapies division provides bone marrow/stem cell transplantation and novel CAR-T therapies.
- UNC Project Malawi and the Malawi Cancer Consortium provide global healthcare outreach.
- Fellows also enjoy access to the breadth of research, education, and mentorship resources (plus basketball) available at the nation’s oldest and finest public university.
For details on salary and benefits, please visit the Office of Graduate Medical Education.
