Thank you for your interest in the University of Washington/Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Hematology‐Oncology Fellowship Program (ACGME #1555413151). The majority of our fellows elect to train for 3.5 years in both hematology and medical oncology, leading to board eligibility in both subspecialties; however, the program is flexible and will consider candidates who are seeking training in the separate subspecialties of either medical oncology or hematology. The program also offers training in the ABIM Research Pathway.
