Caroline Behler, M.D., M.S.
Caroline completed her undergraduate degree in Cell and Molecular Biology at the University of Washington (UW) in Seattle, where she particularly enjoyed seminars that explored the connections between the humanities and science. She then pursued a degree in Medicine and a master’s degree in Pathobiology at UW.
Her internship and residency took her to University of California, San Francisco, where she then completed a fellowship in Hematology and Oncology. After spending several years on faculty in Malignant Hematology and Bone Marrow transplant at UCSF and General Hematology and Oncology at the San Francisco V.A. Medical Center where she was Chief of Malignant Hematology, she joined Pacific Hematology Oncology Associates and the California Pacific Medical Center staff. Her clinical interests remain strong in malignant hematology; she also has expertise in benign hematology and a wide range of solid tumors.
Caroline has always had a passion for education, starting as an anatomy T.A. in medical school, and teaching students and trainees at UCSF and at CPMC, where she is the Education Coordinator for the Hematology/Oncology teaching program. Since joining CPMC she has explored the possibility of a Hematology/Oncology fellowship program here, and is thrilled to lead the initiation of the program this year.
Outside of the clinic and wards, she enjoys gardening, travel, and spending time with her family, including her husband, two girls and two dogs.
