I am excited to make cutting edge cancer care accessible to patients in the local community clinics.

Tina Wang, M.D. began thinking about a career in medicine and oncology while still in high school, when a family friend passed away from lymphoma. “As I started to study more about the biology of cancer, I became much more interested in how cancer grows and ways to stop the growth,” she says.

Dr. Wang specializes in breast, liver and lung cancer, with a particular focus on recent advances in immunotherapy. She is board certified in hematology, oncology, and internal medicine.

An honors student from Stanford University, Dr. Wang received her medical degree at the University of Texas, where she was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. She completed her residency and fellowship at UCLA. She also did immunology research at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. Prior to joining City of Hope, she was an assistant professor at UCLA.

Dr. Wang puts a high priority on building relationships with her patients. She is also passionate about serving the larger community as a lecturer and educator in both English and Mandarin.
