Supriya Gupta Mohile, M.D., was named assistant professor of Medicine in the Hematology/Oncology Unit. She is a board-certified geriatrician and oncologist with clinical expertise in treating patients with genitourinary and gastrointestinal cancers. She was previously at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City.
She will work to develop a clinical and research program in geriatric oncology by strengthening the links between geriatrics and oncology.
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. This national initiative was led by John Bennett, professor of Hematology/Oncology, and William Hall, M.D., professor of Geriatrics.
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 that supported the preliminary data for her application. Her current work examines the relationship between disability and decision-making for older adults with prostate cancer and also utilizes the Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey to evaluate the relationship between vulnerability and cancer outcomes in the elderly. 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.
She is a member of the gastrointestinal and genitourinary oncology teams providing care for stomach, pancreatic, colorectal cancers and prostate, bladder, and kidney cancers.
Two experts from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center have joined the Wilmot neuro-oncology team, broadening the clinical expertise for people with brain cancers.
