Prior to medical school, Dr. Cabebe was a research associate at Genentech, Inc., helping to develop many of the modern cancer drugs used today.

During his fellowship at Stanford Medicine, Dr. Cabebe served as clinical instructor and conducted various phase clinical trials in solid tumors with emphasis in gastrointestinal malignancies, pancreatic and colorectal cancers, as well as early phase I trials with the Experimental Therapeutics Program. He also served as Adjunct Clinical Faculty after fellowship.

Dr. Cabebe holds various medical directorship roles including Medical Director of Oncology and Chair of the Cancer Committee at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Gatos, California. He was also the past Medical Director for Clinical Research at El Camino Hospital in Mountain View, California.
