In 2019, the Dana Farber/Mass General Brigham Hematology-Oncology Fellowship redesigned the 6-month Hematology training track/curriculum required for all fellows seeking to double board in hematology and oncology. Responding to both national and local trends suggesting a future shortage of hematologists, the goal of the redesign was to create a new curriculum that would increase fellow interest in hematology, improve fellows’ clinical knowledge of hematology, and serve as an example to other Hematology-Oncology programs across the country. The revised track has now been in place for four years, and, in this paper, the authors present the fellow experience with the first four years of the redesigned curriculum. Based on the number of fellows who chose to complete the new curriculum, as well as the fellow evaluations and performance on the Hematology In-Training Exam, the authors conclude that the new curriculum has successfully increased both fellow interest in and knowledge of hematology.
