Our vision is to enhance the transition of newly graduated APPs or experienced APPs new to Pediatric Hematology/Oncology and inspire their practice as they become proficient clinicians. The aim of the fellowship is to shape the APP’s practice to deliver high quality, evidence based, ethical, compassionate, and cost-effective care to pediatric hematology/oncology patients, while promoting professional development and leadership.
The fellowship provides comprehensive training with the goal of developing well-prepared Pediatric Hematology/Oncology APPs. APP Fellows are supported by a structured educational framework combining didactic and experiential learning to promote and advance their critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills enabling them to provide safe, efficient, patient-centered, specialized care to a diverse pediatric hematology/oncology patient population. Additionally, the APP fellowship program supports professional development and leadership through participation in research, organizational committees, conferences, and programs.
The first half of the program consists of three, equal length rotations in the Pediatric Inpatient, Pediatric Ambulatory Care Center (PACC), and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). The second half of the program will allow the fellow to choose an area (or areas) of focus. The fellows will be guided by experienced preceptors, managers, and the fellowship director.
Fellow Clinical responsibilities will include:
Pediatric Outpatient: Pediatric Ambulatory Care Center (PACC)
The Pediatric Ambulatory Care Center is a comprehensive APP run clinic that serves patients in the ambulatory care setting. Fellows will have the opportunity to experience various patient visit types, including new patient visits, established care visits for routine management, and urgent care visits. Routine management of the pediatric hematology/oncology patient may include symptom management and/or treatment with high dose chemotherapy or immunotherapy. The fellow will provide direct clinical services for acute and chronic illness management in the areas of Pediatric Solid Tumors and Pediatric Hematologic Malignancies in collaboration with attending physicians.
Pediatric Inpatient: Memorial 9 (M9)At Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the APP driven model in Pediatric Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapies, Pediatric Surgery, and Pediatric Pain and Palliative Care (PACT) promotes autonomous management of patients in these areas of clinical practice. The fellow will provide direct clinical services for acute illness management in these areas in collaboration with attending physicians. The goal of this rotation is to provide comprehensive training in these areas to promote safe, patient-centered care to this specialized patient population.
The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) While rotating within the PICU, the APP fellow will provide direct clinical services for the evaluation and management of critically ill pediatric hematology/oncology patients in collaboration with pediatric intensivists and the multidisciplinary team.
