Welcome to the website for the University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville, division of hematology and medical oncology. The division is dedicated to patient care, clinical research and teaching. It maintains an ACGME accredited medical oncology fellowship program. All faculty members in the division are certified in internal medicine and medical oncology by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

We collaborate with the UF Health Proton Therapy Institute and surgical oncology to provide comprehensive cancer care to our patients. The institute offers combined modality in collaboration with surgical oncology and radiation oncology treatment for cancers of the breast, GI tract, head and neck, lung, prostate and Hodgkin’s disease.

Our website is designed to provide a comprehensive view of our division. We hope you find it both interesting and informative. We have included contact information if you have questions that are not answered on these pages.
