Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship Program | Washington D.C. | MedStar Health

The MedStar Health—Georgetown/Washington Hospital Center Fellowship Program in Hematology and Oncology

This is a small but robust program that can be tailored to meet an individual fellow’s needs. As part of the safety-net hospital for Washington, D.C., the cancer center cares for the most new cancer diagnosis in the D.C. area.

We prioritize clinical training and autonomy in a socioeconomically diverse practice setting. Our excellent reputation sets our graduates apart when looking for permanent positions.

Why train here

We offer excellent clinical training in hematology and oncology during the first 2 years of your fellowship and thoroughly prepare you for both subspecialty board exams.

The majority of our fellows pursue academic careers.


We have clinical and research ties with Georgetown University Hospital, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the VA medical center.  We have research ties with the Lombardi Cancer Center and Georgetown, the NIH, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The fellowship supports opportunities to do rotations at the Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP) or the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Community subspecialty rotations and rotations at the VA Medical Center can be arranged.

Our people


Fellows have opportunities to do research at any of our affiliated institutions.  We also encourage fellows to participate in committees at the American Society of Hematology (ASH) or the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), both of which have headquarters in Washington, D.C.
