Norton Children's Profile

The University of Louisville Department of Pediatrics is home to several treatment programs for children with cancer and blood disorders. Thanks to the partnership with Norton Children's Hospital and the dedicated UofL team of pediatric hematology, oncology, and bone marrow transplant specialists we are ranked among the top 25 pediatric cancer programs in the nation. Our sickle cell treatment program is one of the largest in the country, offering red cell cytapheresis which enables patients to live without many of the complications associated with this disease. We have Kentucky's largest survivorship program for children and young adults who are survivors of childhood cancer.

Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Fellowship Program

The goal of the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology fellowship training program at the University of Louisville is to train the best leaders in academic and clinical pediatric hematology/oncology in the United States. Upon successful completion of our training program, fellows will have a comprehensive understanding of the pathophysiology of pediatric hematologic and oncologic disorders and will be competent in the clinical diagnosis and management of those disorders. Graduates will continue to add new knowledge in the field through their scholarly activity, and by their ability to teach the pediatricians of the future.
