Fellows are selected for the program approximately 7-10 months before the start date of July 1; and are chosen on the strength of prior training, demonstrated clinical competence, and potential for an academic career in hematology and medical oncology bench and/or clinical research. We currently have five slots available for the July 1, 2017 start date.

Applications are only being accepted through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service) starting July 1, 2016 for the July 1, 2017 start date. All applications and supporting materials should be submitted online or mailed to ERAS no later than July 31, 2016.

From the total number of applicants with completed files, approximately 50 will be invited to come in for a day of interviews with faculty members in the Emory Department of Hematology and Medical Oncology before the final selection of fellows is made. We will begin interviewing in September and complete interviews by October 28, 2016.
