FELLOWSHIP IN PAEDIATRIC ONCOLOGY
SKMCH&RC is a comprehensive and modern cancer care facility fully equipped and staffed to treat all types of cancer. Close to 300 new paediatric cancer patients are registered annually. The hospital has a team of UK- and US-trained physicians who provide state of the art diagnostic, treatment and support facilities to its cancer patients. There is a multi- disciplinary approach to cancer treatment at the hospital. All Paediatric cancer patients are treated by teams of medical, radiation and surgical oncologists. The hospital is, therefore, ideally suited for a postgraduate training programme in Paediatric Oncology. We offer a unique learning experience that will prepare the selected candidates to become well trained, highly qualified paediatric oncologists of international standard. In addition, there is a strong emphasis on research, with a number of cancer treatment trials in progress at any time. Fellows will be trained in various aspects of Paediatric Oncology including in- and out-patient management of complex cancer patients, management of oncologic emergencies, radiation oncology, cancer radiology, supportive care and research methodology. The fellowship training period is 3 years.
Fellows who perform very well during their training may be offered an additional year of training at an affiliated institution in the US or the UK, which will be arranged by SKMCH&RC.
