Welcome to the fellowship in pediatric hematology/oncology in the department of pediatrics at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville. This program is accredited through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, or ACGME. Our 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.

We are happy to personally provide you with further details. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
