Fellowship Alumni

After fellowship, our fellows have pursued both academic and community based hematology/oncology positions. The program allows fellows the flexibility to create a fellowship experience that meets their interests, goals, and career aspirations. The fellowship has a strong track record of fellows obtaining academic faculty positions both at UC San Diego and other cancer centers around the country.
