What our fellows have to say about applying to Stanford Hematology/Oncology fellowship.
I applied to oncology fellowship to be able to take care of a group of patients who are suffering from terrible, genetically-driven disease which they often developed through no fault of their own. I believe cancer is the ultimate genetic disease, caused by a combination of inherited and somatic genetic changes. My hope is that through ongoing research we will be able to continue targeting these changes to improve patients' outcomes and help them live their lives with greater optimism.

We look forward to your application for our Hematology and Medical-Oncology fellowship program.

Applicants interested in Hematology, Medical-Oncology or Doubleboarding can submit through ERAS using the same Program Code, 1550514002. We have two tracks, our Traditional research and Pathway clinical. 

Applications can be submitted through ERAS starting July 6. We will not accept applications submitted after August 16.  Final candidate selection will be through the NRMP MATCH process.

Why Stanford?

I applied to Stanford's heme/onc fellowship because of the incredibly thoughtful clinical education and world-class research opportunities. These elements combined with Stanford's clear priority to support fellow wellness make it an ideal place to train.
I applied to Stanford hematology/oncology due to its strong reputation in training and supporting physician-scientists.   It was clear that the leadership truly cared about mentoring trainees and had a clear structure for this.   I liked everyone I met during my interview and had a sense that I would not only be well-trained but have an enjoyable experience in the process.  I also appreciated the leadership's commitment to diversity. 
The reason I applied to Stanford was the feeling that I would be joining a community of people who are all passionate about something, whether it be clinical care, research, education, or something else altogether, and I knew that the people around me would drive me to become the best I can be as well.
Stanford was a dream place for me for fellowship. In addition to the gorgeous weather and beautiful campus, it offers a broad spectrum of research opportunities and collaboration. I am very excited to meet world-class experts in each field and learn from them.
I chose Stanford due to its excellent reputation in the sciences, particularly basic science, and collaborative environment. In addition, a number of Stanford oncology fellows have gone on to careers in industry, such as Genentech, which is something I’m interested in. Finally, Stanford is close to my family and I wanted to move back to the Bay Area.
I applied to heme-onc fellowship (along with residency) as part of the Translational Investigator Program (TIP). Having done my medicine residency here and interacted with the heme-onc faculty and fellows, I felt that the fellowship program would give me the most comprehensive, compassionate, and cutting-edge training in hematology-oncology, particularly when it comes to cancer immunotherapy, which is my primary area of interest.
