Fellowship Program Directors' Resources
The purpose of this site is to offer a forum for pediatric hematology/oncology fellowship program directors to share information about our individual program's approaches to curriculum and training issues. The site is supported by the ASPHO Training Committee.
Program Directors' Forum and Resource Library
The ASPHO online member community has a Discussion Group and Resource Library specifically for fellowship program directors. Members can ask questions and share resources with other fellowship program directors across the country. The resource library contains evaluation templates, quality and program improvement resources, curricular materials, and other resources.
Your Institution’s Trainees
ASPHO encourages all Fellows to join ASPHO so they can benefit from the Society’s professional development, education, and networking resources for pediatric hematology/oncology subspecialists early in their career. Membership is free, and automatically renewed, for trainees in the first three years of the fellowship program. A discounted member rate is available for 4th and 5th year fellows. Program Directors are invited to enroll their institutions’ Fellows as members. Learn more about member benefits.
Council of Pediatric Subspecialties (CoPS)
The Council of Pediatric Subspecialties was created in 2006 as an organization to address issues and challenges common to all pediatric subspecialists related to clinical care, education, and research. Initially charged by the Association of Medical School Pediatric Department Chairs (AMSPDC), the American Board of Pediatrics, the Association of Pediatric Program Directors (APPD), and the Federation of Pediatric Organizations to address fellowship application dates, CoPS has evolved into a well-coordinated organization. CoPS has an emerging track record of success and a developed voice for pediatric subspecialists. In this new era of Competency-Based Milestones Evaluation (CBME), CoPS is planning a research study to increase understanding of how entrustment decisions are made in fellowship training and how competencies inform those decisions. ASPHO is proud to participate in this research endeavor so that our subspeciality can support the generation of new and influential data to advance medical education in our field.
Please take a moment to review the history, progress, and plans of CoPS on their website. Please also review the short slide show designed to summarize the accomplishments of CoPS in the past few years.
