Dr. Annabelle Teng, Class of 2019
Dr. Annabelle Teng obtained her medical degree from New York Medical College and then completed surgical internship and residency training at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Roosevelt (New York). Prior to medical school, she spent six weeks on an archeological dig in the Jordanian desert and wrote her thesis based on ancient DNA collected from excavated teeth. She then spent three years in Japan researching for a vaccine against Japanese cedar pollen allergy at RIKEN Research Center for Allergy and Immunology. During general surgery residency training, Dr. Teng found she had a particular affinity for surgical oncology and decided to pursue further training in the field.
The John Wayne Cancer Foundation congratulates and salutes the 7 complex general surgical oncology fellows at the John Wayne Cancer Institute (JWCI) at Providence Saint John’s Health Center. Please look for spotlights on the remarkable physicians they are and will continue to be after graduating from the fellowship program.
