Oncology Journal Club:
Fellows are assigned to present articles for Oncology Journal Club. The articles are reviewed and analyzed by the hematology/oncology fellow and presented to the faculty. The fellow works with an attending to determine a topic, and the faculty presents a didactic relative to the topic to increase the understanding of how this article fits into the current knowledge.
Topics are to include general oncology, research and ethics.

Fellows are assigned to prepare and plan the Hematology Journal Club. They will choose an article and appropriate case to discuss during this time. Faculty will be responsible for presenting didactics during this time on a regularly scheduled basis. On a yearly basis these will include basic science seminars.

Research Conference:
The hematology/oncology fellows also have an opportunity, on an assigned basis, to present their current research data or to discuss a topic of interest. Their presentation is done in conjunction with a faculty presentation as well. These presentations take place at a research conference held monthly.

Basic Science Didactic:
The fellows are responsible for preparing one basic science lecture yearly.

Core Lectures:
The hematology/oncology fellow presents core material including cases to residents and medical students. Four to five presentations every three months are shared by the hematology/oncology fellows who work with the GME coordinator. A faculty member is present to evaluate the presentation and to add comments.
