The specific scope of the fellowship will be highly dependent on your unique interests and intent.

You should already have a strong knowledge of the pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of common conditions in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology. As well, a solid approach to the evaluation of new clinical questions and a good understanding of the laboratory and diagnostic methods is necessary.

Pediatric Hematology/Oncology encompasses a wide variety of diagnoses, and the management of these patients is becoming increasingly specialized. Specialists treat children with both non-malignant and malignant hematologic disorders and solid tumours, and treatment now includes advanced modalities such as stem cell therapy, immunotherapy and targeted inhibitors of cellular pathways.

In-patient and out-patient opportunities

Participate in in-patient ward rounds, consultative activities within Children’s Hospital and out-patient clinics at CancerCare Manitoba.

Explore laboratory rotations

Experience laboratory based rotations to advance your understanding and knowledge of diagnostic modalities, as well as take responsibility with a senior supervisory role.

Individualized training

Explore the various subspecialisations of this complex field. Each program is tailored to your specific interests within the fields of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology.
