Leukemia: Information for Healthcare Professionals


At UCLA, patients with leukemia are treated through the Division of Hematology/Oncology at the David Geffen School of Medicine-UCLA. Clinical care services are facilitated primarily through the Oncology Center in Westwood. To better support surrounding communities, UCLA has opened several community oncology practices to allow easier access to comprehensive cancer care services and investigative clinical trials.
