Clinical Research Fellowship in Allogeneic Blood and Marrow Transplant

Program Coordinator: Dr. Auro Viswabandya

Fellows have the opportunity to participate in a clinical fellowship focusing on bone marrow transplantation at the Division of Hematology at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

This fellowship focuses on clinical management and decision making for patients undergoing allogeneic transplantation for various diseases and their early and long-term management post transplant. Fellows are expected to participate in clinical, research and educational activities. They receive robust exposure to management of complications such as acute and chronic graft versus host disease, infectious issues, and emerging comorbidities such as metabolic disorders and secondary malignancies.

During the fellowship training, fellows are given the opportunity to understand the donor search process, apheresis principles and graft processing including cryopreservation. Knowledge regarding quality control in stem cell transplantation plays a major role during the training process and fellows are exposed to various quality control steps regarding stem cell procurement, infusion and the transplantation process. Strong emphasis is given to ensure that trainees at the completion of this 2-year fellowship program are competent to function as medical experts for allogeneic transplantation and as health advocates, have acquired appropriate managerial skills, and are able to expertly communicate and collaborate within their respective health care environments. Fellows have ample opportunity to participate at various clinical trials, understanding their basic principles and execution. A formal educational program with regular teaching rounds is in place and qualifies for CME credits.

Minimum Requirements: Subspecialty training in hematology and/or medical oncology and be eligible for licensure through the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.
