Fellowship in Consultative Hematology!
The Mount Sinai Health System is looking for a Senior Fellow to join its rapidly growing Division of Hematology-Oncology.
The Division of Hematology-Oncology at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is pleased to announce the creation of a fellowship in Consultative Hematology, based at the Mount Sinai West (MSW) – Mount Sinai St. Luke’s (MSSL) sites. The program is now open to receive applications. MSW/MSSL is a 1000+ bed medical center at two campuses in Manhattan’s Midtown and Upper West Side neighborhoods in New York City. MSW/MSSL serves a diverse and rapidly growing patient population, and comprises extremely active Medicine, Surgery, and Obstetric-Gynecology services and subspecialties.
Joining the Division of Hematology/Oncology as a senior fellow is an extraordinary opportunity for a compassionate, dedicated, and forward-thinking hematologist/oncologist in training. We offer an excellent faculty, a supportive, collegial environment, and the opportunity to live in one of the most desirable cities in the United States.
This one year program is aimed at candidates who have completed their Hematology or Hematology-Oncology fellowship training and who want to gain experience solving challenging clinical problems requiring expertise in non-malignant Hematology; acquiring master-level skills in communicating as a consultant and educating younger colleagues in Internal Medicine; and pursuing independent research on a path to a career in academic Hematology.
The goals of this year of training include: immersion in state-of-the-art clinical non-malignant Hematology; developing principles of professionalism and effective communication with consulting services; mastering and refining didactic skills by teaching medical residents rotating on the Hematology service, both in the clinic and in the classroom; and undertaking an independent project in clinical or translational research. The leadership of the Division will help the candidate find a mentor from among the ISSM’s outstanding faculty, in the candidate’s chosen area, for example in Sickle Cell Disease, or in Thrombosis and Hemostasis.
After completing this training, the MSW-MSSL fellow will be able to approach the multiplicity of Hematologic challenges across the broad landscape of clinical and scholarly medicine with experience and confidence, and be well-positioned to pursue a career in academic Hematology.
The program curriculum encompasses all areas of non-malignant Hematology, in both inpatient and outpatient settings, with particular emphasis on diagnosis and treatment of congenital and acquired anemias, disorders of hemostasis and thrombosis, and Hematologic disorders in pregnancy. The fellowship curriculum will be based on multiple educational approaches, including patient-based, case-based, and self-directed learning, and didactic teaching sessions.
