Certification in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology
Specialists in pediatric hematology/oncology have generally completed training in general pediatrics before entering their 3-year fellowship in hematology/oncology. They must be certified in general pediatrics, and thus must have passed the certification exam in general pediatrics, before they are eligible to become board-certified in hematology/oncology.
Certification in pediatric subspecialties is administered by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) and its subboard for pediatric hematology/oncology. The ABP administers the subspecialty certifying examination approximately every two years. More than 75% of ASPHO members are board certified in pediatric hematology/oncology.
ASPHO supports members in preparing for initial certification as well as for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) by offering resources and education programs that are developed in accordance with the defined hematology/oncology content outline.
ABP Content Outline
The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) updated the hematology/oncology content outline effective April 1, 2019. This content outline will be used for all pediatric hematology-oncology in-training, certification, and maintenance of certification examinations administered after this date. ASPHO has incorporated the new content outline into the 2021 ASPHO Review Course enduring materials.
