Yates started at UVM in 1974 with the goal of building a cancer center. At the time, he was the only medical oncologist in the state.

And in fact, it was probably as strong as some of the programs that were in the major cancer centers, fortuitously, because the science was there, and the opportunity to develop a training program in medical oncology and to expand the medical oncology expertise, locally, was really rich at that time,” he said.
