Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, graduated its first hematology fellow in 1934. The hematology and oncology fellowships were separate for the next 49 years.
In 1983, a combined Hematology/Oncology Fellowship was established at Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota and received ACGME accreditation in 1987. We anticipate that 10 trainees will complete this program annually.
Mayo Clinic also offers hematology/oncology fellowships at its campuses in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, and Jacksonville, Florida, as well as an advanced hematology/oncology training year in Rochester.
