After attending medical school at Flinders University in Australia, Dr. Jaffray spent the next 6 years of her training on the east coast of the United States. She completed her pediatric residency at the University of Massachusetts and her pediatric hematology/oncology training at the combined Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell program. In 2013 she returned to her home state of California to start a two year advanced fellowship in pediatric coagulation at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles under the guidance of Dr. Guy Young. Following the completion of her coagulation fellowship, she stayed at CHLA as a faculty hematologist specializing in pediatric diseases of hemostasis and thrombosis.
