Training beyond the first year
In the second year and beyond, fellows begin a period of immersive research, with the aim of assuming independent research programs in respected academic institutions.
A variety of investigative opportunities, ranging from the most fundamental molecular biology to clinical trials and health outcome analyses, are available at Dana-Farber, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and MGH, as well as in laboratories located at the MGH Cancer Center in Charlestown, the Harvard Medical School, Boston Children's Hospital, and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. Additional clinical training is available for those desiring to board in hematology. Additionally, upper-level fellows maintain a longitudinal continuity clinic in the disease center and campus of their choosing.
