The SFGH Division of Hematology-Oncology currently comprises 8 faculty who provide consultative inpatient care for patients with benign hematologic conditions and malignant solid tumors. The Division also has an active outpatient practice and chemotherapy service, supported by a team of mid-level providers, social workers and pharmacists. The Hematology-Oncology Division at SFGH is committed to academic excellence.
