Hematology & Oncology Fellowship
Fellowship Program Director: Vijaya Donthireddy, M.D.
Fellowship Program Coordinator: Brandy Wright
The Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology offers four positions yearly to ABIM-eligible candidates for the Hematology-Oncology fellowship program. The 36-month training program is supported by Henry Ford Health, one of the largest and most respected integrated health care delivery systems. Fellows utilize the latest technology and train from a highly skilled clinical staff at Henry Ford Hospital, a nationally renowned specialty care, teaching and research institution that is the flagship of Henry Ford Health.
Our fellowship program accepts applications only through ERAS and grants positions only through the NRMP match program. Application materials should be complete in ERAS by the end of August. Fellowship interviews are held in September and October.
Fellows in the program progress through a well-structured curriculum while being exposed to a wide spectrum of patients and pathologies. While Henry Ford Hospital is a tertiary referral center for the distant counties and nearby states, it also serves the metropolitan population of Detroit as well as the surrounding suburbs. This provides an exceptional learning environment because of the high complexity of care provided alongside the routine care of multiple populations we serve with the breadth of experience they provide
The Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology’s commitment to education provides outstanding fellowship training by utilizing the medical expertise as well as the vast resources of Henry Ford Health and Henry Ford Cancer.
The fellows participate actively in some of the unique programs available at Henry Ford Hospital such as Multidisciplinary Tumor boards, Bone Marrow Transplant, Phase I clinical trials program, Cardio-Oncology, Psycho-Oncology and Palliative Medicine.
Fellows also participate in the Institutional Graduate Medical Education curriculum, Physician Wellness curriculum, as well as Schwartz Rounds which is a forum where caregivers come together to discuss the psychosocial aspects of care giving. These are just a few of the things we do at Henry Ford to make fellowship training a truly unique and rewarding experience.
Our fellowship program provides the training and experience necessary for fellows to complete all the requirements for board eligibility in hematology and medical oncology and be competent to provide expertise as consultants. There are no restrictions regarding the types of cases our fellows see and they are involved in patient care right from the start, with added responsibility as their competency increases. This model of education ensures that our fellows leave the program exceptionally prepared for any career path they may chose.
Whether they decide to work in a regional hospital, a teaching hospital, or an academic setting, our fellows leave with all the tools necessary to become successful in their career paths.
