Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Certification is not required but can increase employment opportunities. If you want to be certified in a medical specialty, you need to pass the specialty board examination in your field after completing residency requirements. The American Board of Internal Medicine offers certification in hematology to those who complete training and licensing requirements. The American Board of Pediatrics offers certification in pediatric hematology-oncology. Contact the boards for more information. Some hematologists also choose to become board certified in oncology since this field is so closely related to hematology.
