In 1964, Dr. Jerome M. Vaeth, the director of the Zellerbach Tumor Institute at UCSF’s Mount Zion Hospital began a radiation oncology training program with the two other faculty members at Mount Zion: Dr. Jerold P. Green and Dr. Alan F. Schroder. When the faculty left Mount Zion in 1971 to staff the community hospitals of San Francisco, they wished to continue their tradition of teaching in their new centers.

This is their legacy.
