Several years: The path to being certified in pediatric hematology/oncology after completing college is: medical school (4 years), pediatric residency (3 years), pediatric hematology/oncology fellowship (3 years). Some do additional years as a research fellow if interested in doing independent research in the field as well. Good luck!

3 years minimum: After completion of medical school, one normally completes a Pediatric residency (3 years) and then a pediatric hematology/oncology fellowship (3 years minimum). Additional time in fellowship training may occur, particularly if the individual desires a research career.
