The Section of Medical Oncology at Yale Cancer Center welcomes its first students to the newly-launched Diversity Enhancement Program in Oncology, Larisa Kamga, PhD, and Taylor Barrow.

The program offers an eight-week rotation for two underrepresented in medicine (URiM) students or residents, and is designed to provide exposure to hematology/medical oncology as a career, provide faculty-mentored clinical experience in oncology as well as with a corresponding clinical or translational research project. Students also receive co-mentorship from current Medical Oncology-Hematology T32 fellows.
