Fellowship Programme

Department of Pediatrics: Hematology Oncology Resident Education

Pediatric Hematology-Oncology is one of the core subspecialties for pediatric residents at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. All pediatric residents will by rotation spend 2 months each year covering the inpatient hematology and oncology service. These two months spent on the hematology-oncology rotation can be a "tough" time for residents, as they learn to take care of often very complicated and sick patients, some of whom may be dying, but in retrospect, virtually all of these residents look back on their time as a very rewarding experience.

The faculty has been involved in evolving the new educational curriculum for the National Board of Examinations. Over the course of the 8-week rotation, several afternoons each week will provide enhanced learning opportunities, which may include lectures, pathology review, and bedside teaching, among others. Over the course of the 8 weeks, the curriculum will cover most, if not all, of the topics covered in the curriculum of the National Boards under the heading of "Disorders of the Blood and Neoplastic Disorders".

In addition pediatric residents will also attend the outpatient clinic at the Center for Child Health. This allows the residents to learn about, and help to care for, children with a wide range of hematologic or oncologic conditions which they may never be exposed to in the inpatient setting. Over the course of the two months, the residents will spend time in a number of clinics - general hematology, hemophilia, thrombosis, general oncology, neuro-oncology and stem cell transplantation. They are also invited to attend the many educational programs offered by the division - including thalassemia team meetings and weekly research seminar.

◊ ◊ History

The pediatric hematology fellowship at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital has been established in the year 2007 and we have recruited our first fellow in February. The program is currently under the direction of Dr Anupam Sachdeva.

◊ ◊ Duration of fellowship

Minimum 2 years, as required by the National Board of Examinations. Fellows have the option to do a third fellowship year to focus on and complete their research projects. This strategy is a way to enhance future career development. Funding may be identified within program resources, but fellows must seek some external salary support for this extra year.

◊ ◊ Financial support

The hematology-oncology fellowship program at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital is supported by the grant from the hospital. In addition we have funded projects from the Ministry of Environment and Forests as well as funding from UNICEF and other agencies.
