POB Resident Electives

Select pediatric residents may be approved for a 4-week elective rotation at the Pediatric Oncology Branch. This rotation emphasizes the important connection between research and patient care in pediatric oncology. The resident is supervised directly by the Branch’s attending physician and clinical fellows. Residents attend daily in-patient and out-patient rounds, multiple weekly Branch conferences, and are expected to research relevant topics and present a 30-minute talk toward the end of their rotation.

  • This is a highly specialized rotation and only residents with experience and/or interest in pediatric oncology will be considered and possibly selected, on an occasional basis.
  • Applicants will be selected based on review of their credentials and cover letter, which should outline their goals for this rotation.
  • Only one resident will be allowed per session. Availability may be limited due to programmatic constraints.
