“We welcome our new fellows to the program, and we’re excited to offer this dual training experience for Dr. Tran, in partnership with the excellent training program in pediatric hematology-oncology,” Dr. Yu said. “We are often asked about dual programs by potential applicants, so we are happy to be able to offer this opportunity and explore the potential of this format for other fellows in the future.”
