About Me

As a geriatric oncologist, I devote my time to trying to improve care delivery and outcomes for older adults with cancer. At the Wilmot Cancer Institute, we have one of the country's few geriatric oncology clinics. Our team -- Specialized Oncology Care and Research in the Elderly, or SOCARE -- is recognized nationally and internationally as providing the most comprehensive, evidence-based model of care for patients aged 70 and over with cancer.

My philosophy is to focus on the patient as a whole, not just the cancer. For this reason, we employ a multidisciplinary approach to the care of every patient. This includes an assessment of overall health status and input from nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, nutrition and social work, whenever appropriate.

Over 60% of patients with cancer are aged 65 and over, and with the aging of the population, this number will increase. Despite the high prevalence of cancer in older adults, patients who are older are underrepresented in clinical trials. As a result, there is a gap in knowledge in the safest and most effective cancer treatments. Through evidence-based clinical practice and research, we hope to close this gap.

Conditions I Treat:

- Genitourinary cancers
- Gastrointestinal cancers
- Geriatric cancers

Research

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.
