Throughout Texas and globally, our division has provided care to infants, children and adolescents affected by hematologic, oncologic, and immunologic disorders.

Our division provides several educational opportunities both globally and locally including Pediatric Tumor Board, a weekly multi-disciplinary conference offering review of oncology diagnoses followed by discussion of current research and management options and a monthly hematology conference reviewing the diagnosis and management of complicated hematology consults.

The fellowship program was initiated in 2008 and has now accepted nine fellows into the program. At our first site visit in 2011 we received a commendation from the ACGME and are accredited through 2022. The fellowship consists of one clinical year followed by two years of research which takes place primarily at the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute.

We continue providing internationally recognized research trials through the NIH, COG, and POETIC consortiums to infants, children, adolescents, and young adults  affected by cancer and blood disorders.

"We continue our mission to disseminate new knowledge to medical students, residents, and practicing physicians; to acquire new knowledge by participating in basic and clinical research; and to put new knowledge into practice in the care of patients." Dr. Chatchawin Assanasen, MD, MBA
