The doctor joined Miami Cancer Institute from the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, where he was the Director of the Women’s Center of the Sylvester Center’s Deerfield Beach satellite facility.

Back in 1964, Dr. Vogel earned his medical degree from Yale University School of Medicine. He then went on to complete his residency in internal medicine at the Grady Memorial Hospital in 1966, followed by a fellowship in medical oncology at the NIH Warren Grant Magnuson Clinical Center in 1969.
