Nominations for the prestigious award came from house staff only and a GME selection committee chose the winner. The Hematology/Oncology Fellowship team accepted the award, which includes a $1,000 professional development stipend for the program, during the UF College of Medicine Celebration of Excellence in Medical Education on April 2.  

The fellowship is a comprehensive and specialized training program designed to prepare fellows for successful careers as hematologist and oncologists. The program combines clinical excellence, research experience, teaching opportunities and career mentorship to prepare fellows to make significant contributions to the field through patient care, research advancements and education. 

Martina Murphy, M.D., leads the fellowship with Jess DeLaune, M.D., an assistant professor and genitourinary oncologist at the Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center who serves as associate program director; Carol Mathew, M.D., an assistant professor and non-malignant hematologist who serves as assistant program director; and Shelby Thompson, the research fellowship program assistant.
