UCSF Fresno recently launched a new fellowship training program in Hematology/Oncology. Fellowships offer advanced training beyond residency in a particular sub-specialty. The UCSF Fresno Hematology/Oncology Fellowship is a three-year program headed up by Uzair B. Chaudhary, MD, chief of Hematology/Oncology at UCSF Fresno. Training takes place primarily at Community Regional Medical Center with a bone marrow transplant rotation at UCSF and rotations at California Cancer Center. Hematology is the study of blood. Oncology is the study of cancer. A hematologist-oncologist is a physician who specializes in the treatment of blood diseases and cancers. The new program started in July with two fellows Greg Gilmore, DO, and Mohamad Barakat, MD. “The goal of the program is to equip physicians with the professional, attitudinal, cognitive and technical skills necessary to provide patients with kind and compassionate care,” said Dr. Chaudhary. This new fellowship will enhance cancer care in the region and further reduce the need for Valley patients to travel outside of the region for specialty care.
