Our fellowship program provides a variety of educational opportunities.

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

Bleeding/Thrombosis Lecture Series: 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 a dedicated lectures series which includes reviewing hallmark journal articles. We cover several topics, including hemophilia treatment, von Willebrand disease, and rare bleeding disorders.

Benign Hematology Rounds: We cover interesting, difficult and complex hematology cases with our Hematology experts.

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.

Case Conference: Fellows present a topic at this case conference.  Several specialties are invited to help support the topic with imaging, pathology, etc.  Fellows do an in-depth review of the literature and research studies.

Hem/Onc Didactics: Hem/Onc Didactics are held 2-3x 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.
