Our fellowship program provides a variety of educational opportunities.

A printable version of the monthly conference schedule is available and detailed below:

Bleeding Disorder Informal Didactics: Because we are the only Hemophilia Treatment Center in the state Arkansas, it is critical that we continue to be up to date on bleeding disorder treatment and evaluation. We have started informal roundtable didactics prior to our weekly Bleeding Disorder clinic. We cover several topics, including hemophilia treatment, von Willebrand disease, and rare bleeding disorders.

Peds Grand Rounds: Pediatric Grand Rounds is held at noon each Tuesday. It is designed to provide information that will enhance physicians’ clinical skills to diagnose and treat patients in the areas of pediatric subspecialties and primary care.

Board Review: Board Review is led by one of our attending once a month. We analyze board-style questions in preparation for our yearly in-training exam and ultimately, our pediatric hem/onc boards.

Journal Club: Journal club is a weekly fellow-led discussion of an article chosen by the fellow and approved by the program director. The goal is to critically analyze and evaluate research in medical literature and use evidence-based medicine in our practice.

Fellows Education Conference: This monthly conference is sponsored by the Department of Pediatrics for all pediatric fellows. The goal is to provide fellows with tools to transition successfully into academic, private, or research medicine.

Hem/Onc Didactics: Hem/Onc Didactics are held weekly in a structured learning environment to cover the core curriculum required of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology fellows. Faculty present lectures, however, fellows are given the opportunity to lead lectures throughout the year.

Brain Tumor, Vascular Anomalies, and Sarcoma Conferences are available for any fellow to attend but are not mandatory.
