City of Hope offers Vanessa K. Salinas, M.D., the perfect opportunity to work with dedicated professionals who are committed to delivering the best care to children with benign hematologic and oncologic disorders, as well as the scientific environment that fosters professional advancement.
Salinas has been caring for children at City of Hope since 2014 as a hospitalist and attending physician. She specializes in the research and treatment of hemophilia, but her interests and desire to make a difference go much further.
From earliest training, Salinas has worked to bring proper health care to communities that need it most. She helped Peru's Ministry of Health develop programs for the underserved. She volunteered with the Peruvian American Medical Society to bring health care cooperatives to the Amazon jungle and helped the World Federation of Hemophilia create a hemophilia treatment facility in the city of Arequipa.
After receiving her medical degree in Peru, Salinas completed her pediatric residency at Texas Tech University, followed by fellowships in pediatric hematology and oncology, as well as hemostasis and thrombosis disorders, all at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
A firm believer in disseminating medical knowledge as widely as possible, Salinas has produced dozens of publications and presentations ranging from the latest advances in hemophilia to the benefits of breastfeeding.
