Rebecca Olin, MD

Hematologist

Dr. Rebecca Olin specializes in adult bone marrow transplantation (BMT) and the treatment of leukemia, lymphoma, myelodysplasia and myeloproliferative disorders, and multiple myeloma. In her research, she is particularly interested in the process of decision making in cancer treatment and the impact of cancer treatment on patient quality of life. She also studies how best to treat blood cancers in older patients.

Olin earned a medical degree at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha in 2002. She completed a residency in Internal Medicine and a fellowship in Hematology and Oncology, both at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and served as chief fellow from 2007 to 2008. Olin also earned a master's degree in clinical epidemiology, with a focus on medical decision making.
