Program history

The Hematology/Oncology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida began in 1996 with one fellow a year. Thirty physicians have completed training. We anticipate that three trainees will complete this program annually.

Fellows have successfully pursued careers in academic hematology/oncology as well as in group practice settings, and several have become Mayo Clinic faculty.
