This program offers clinical or translational training in HIV-associated cancers. Candidates should have ACGME-accredited board certification in pediatrics or internal medicine plus relevant subspecialty training (usually, but not limited to, oncology or hematology). While this is not an absolute requirement, exceptions will be made only for candidates who have a strong academic background in relevant areas. Physicians with a strong background in laboratory research but without the above credentials may apply to individual laboratories within the HIV and AIDS Malignancy Branch for training in laboratory research.
All CCR residents and clinical fellows train at the 240-bed NIH Clinical Center, internationally recognized as the premier hospital dedicated to translational research and clinical care. Elective rotations offer residents and clinical fellows the opportunity to have direct experience in the care of patients enrolled in investigational protocols in the disciplines of allergy and immunology, anatomic pathology, critical care medicine/internal medicine, hematopathology, infectious diseases, medical genetics, and transfusion medicine. Participants will have first-hand exposure to the design, conduct, and management of clinical trials.
All of CCR’s programs are part of Graduate Medical Education at NIH.
