"We are grateful for the ASH support allowing our training program at Emory to embark in this exciting new and dedicated non-malignant hematology track. This is a single board program designed to engage the new generation of hematologists in pursuing academic careers focusing on sickle cell disease, thrombosis and hemostasis, and transfusion medicine, in an effort to build and maintain the pool of academic hematologists in our country."

"We are so excited to have been chosen by ASH as a site for the Hematology-Focused Fellowship Training Program. Our Fellowship in Atlanta, GA, offers trainees a comprehensive education in service to a racially and culturally diverse community. Our state-of-the-art comprehensive sickle cell and hemostasis and thrombosis centers, and collaborations with partner institutions offer a wealth of resources to train the next generation of non-malignant hematologists."

The HFFTP, created by the American Society of Hematology aims to enhance recruitment of internal medicine and med-peds residency graduates into academic careers in classical hematology.

The HFFTP will offer rigorous clinical and translational research training under the mentorship of experienced faculty. Integrated into the highly successful Hematology and Oncology Fellowship Program at Emory University, the HFFTP will train 2 fellows per year for 3 years of support, for a period of 5 cohorts. The HFFTP track integrates into the combined/core program by incorporating the malignant and general classical hematology curriculum, including educational/didactic activities in the first year. During the second year, both groups of trainees engage in research activities based on career path. HFFTP fellows will have an enhanced research experience with up to 24 months of clinical or basic/translational research, including the option of enrolling in Emory’s Master of Science in Clinical Research Program or the Certificate Program in Translational Research. In addition, both groups share educational activities related to research, wellness, and career development. During the third year, trainees have a combination of research, electives, and assigned clinical rotations.  At the completion of the HFFTP, fellows will be single-board-eligible in Hematology.
