About the Division

The UC Division of Hematology Oncology was founded in 1948 by Richard Vilter, MD, as the Hematology Division of the Department of Internal Medicine when few similar divisions existed in the United States.

In 1976, the division was combined to include both disciplines of hematology and medical oncology.

The division works in close affiliation with other units within the Academic Health Center including: pathology, surgical oncology, radiation oncology, the Hoxworth Blood Center, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (Hematology Oncology Unit), the UC Health Barrett Center, several basic science departments of the College of Medicine and the hematology oncology section of Cincinnati Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center
