Welcome from the Chief

Welcome from the Chief

The Division of Hematology and Oncology includes physicians devoted to benign hematology, hemostasis and thrombosis, malignant hematology, hematopoietic stem cell transplant, and solid tumor oncology.

The Hematology/Oncology faculty and nurse practitioners provide both inpatient and outpatient services on a daily basis. A dedicated inpatient unit serves the specialized needs of the hematology/oncology population. Consultative services in hematology and medical oncology are provided to other inpatient services 7 days per week by our faculty and fellows.

Outpatient clinics are housed in the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center, which opened in April, 2011. The University of Virginia is proud to be designated as a National Cancer Institute (NCI) Cancer Center for the past 26 years.

The Division faculty have robust collaborations with clinical colleagues in surgery, radiation therapy, pathology, and radiology, and emphasize multidisciplinary patient care. We also have highly productive translational research collaborations with our basic science colleagues.
