Division chief Kara Kelly, MD.

The Division of Hematology/Oncology provides a full range of inpatient and outpatient services for children and adolescents with malignancies and blood disorders.

We care for approximately 105 new patients each year, involving an average of 3,000 clinic visits annually. Our division is also responsible for more than 30 monthly inpatient consultations.


Our division is actively involved in the education of both residents and medical students. Our fellows play an integral role in educating these rotating trainees.


Our faculty’s research interests include the long-term side effects of cancer treatment in children and adolescents, the biology of Hodgkin’s disease, immunotherapy for neuroblastoma, new drug development for pediatric cancer and pain management in patients with sickle cell disease. Much of our clinical research is done through participation in various committees of the Children’s Oncology Group.

Clinical Care

We have specialized centers for the care of patients with sickle cell disease, hemophilia and malignancies. Our inpatient and outpatient services offer specialized care of children with hematologic and oncologic diagnoses, provided by residents, fellows and faculty members.
