Song named state insurance agency's first visiting fellow

Paul Song, MD, a Cedars-Sinai radiation oncologist, has been named the California Department of Insurance’s first visiting fellow.

The fellowship lasts six months. In that time, Song expects to assist with healthcare policy and complete a research project focusing on a shortage of primary care physicians. Based on his research, Song will make recommendations to the state’s insurance commissioner on addressing the issue.

Song is a faculty member in the Department of Radiation Oncology and Biomedical Sciences in the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute.
