Manisha Bansal, M.D.
Thank you for your interest in UF's Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship
Program in Jacksonville, Florida. This program is a collaborative effort
between the major pediatric institutions in Jacksonville: the University of Florida
College of Medicine – Jacksonville; Nemours Children's Specialty Care, Jacksonville;
and Wolfson Children’s Hospital. We are proud to be able to train future leaders
in the field.
Our program is an exciting opportunity to maximize your potential as a clinician
and researcher through expert mentorship; structured educational opportunities;
and access to the resources of all three institutions. The Division of Pediatric
Hematology/Oncology has a state-of-the-art clinic and inpatient facilities. We have
a breadth of pathology in both hematology and oncology including comprehensive sickle
cell, hemophilia, and neuro-oncology programs. Our program is only one of two pediatric
centers in the nation that is recognized for outstanding achievement by the American
College of Surgeons. We also have a FACT-accredited stem cell transplant program
in collaboration with Mayo Clinic, also located in Jacksonville.
Clinical services are based at Nemours Children's Specialty Care and Wolfson Children’s
Hospital. We are the only comprehensive pediatric hematology/oncology center in
Northeast Florida. We offer participation in many clinical research studies (including
Phase I and II trials) in the areas of hematology, oncology and stem cell transplantation.
Jacksonville is also a wonderful place to live. It offers a nice balance or urban
and suburban living, easy access to beaches, and short drives to major sites. The
weather is warm and allows for many family-friendly outdoor activities. Our location
allows for a patient base that spans from Southern Georgia, as far west as Tallahassee,
and as far south as Daytona Beach in addition to national and international referrals.
I am happy to personally provide you with further details. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
