She is a board-certified geriatrician and oncologist with clinical expertise in treating patients with genitourinary and gastrointestinal cancers. A graduate of Pennsylvania State University, she earned her M.D. at Thomas Jefferson Medical School. She completed internship, residency and fellowships in hematology/oncology and geriatrics at University of Chicago Medical Center, where she also earned a master's degree in health outcomes research.

Mohile's fellowship was funded by an American Society of Clinical Oncology and John Hartford Foundation initiative to train oncologists in the care of the elderly. Mohile's research interests include the evaluation of patterns of care, health outcomes, and quality of life related to treatment for systemic cancer in older patients. She has previously received an American Society of Clinical Oncology Young Investigator Award and Merit Awards. Her current work examines the relationship between disability and decision-making for older adults with prostate cancer and also utilizes large population-based databases to evaluate the relationship between vulnerability and cancer outcomes in the elderly. She is working also to develop clinical trials for older adults with cancer and to identify interventions to reduce treatment morbidity. Mohile is a Hartford Geriatrics Health Outcomes Research Scholar sponsored by the American Geriatrics Society and is a recent Clinical and Translational Science Institute K-12 Awardee.
