Elective Rotations for Residents and Clinical Fellows

Elective Description

The Pediatric Oncology Branch (POB) practices a combined modality approach to the treatment of childhood malignancies, especially sarcomas and recurrent tumors. The POB has programs in active drug development, experimental therapeutics, and immunotherapy. Patients include children, adolescents, and young adults enrolled in current National Institutes of Health (NIH)-sponsored clinical trials. The rotation emphasizes the important connection between research and patient care in pediatric oncology. The Resident will be supervised directly by the POB attending physician and clinical Fellows. Residents will attend daily inpatient and outpatient rounds and multiple weekly POB conferences. Residents are expected to research relevant topics and present a 30-minute talk toward the end of their rotation.
