Welcome to the College of Medicine Division of Medical Oncology
Our team specializes in the treatment of solid tumor cancers and research dedicated to improving therapy of solid tumor cancers, which include but are not limited to genitourinary, breast, head and neck, thyroid, and lung.
The Markey Cancer Center's dedicated multidisciplinary treatment teams, including physicians from all subspecialties, nurses, pharmacists, and researchers, work together to provide specialized care. Beginning with the initial diagnosis through remission, the medical oncology team strives to give the best patient care possible. Patients are seen in a supportive environment where they are offered the latest advances in surgical, radiation, and chemotherapeutic intervention.
At Markey Cancer Center, our 14 faculty members and seven full-time advanced practice registered nurses (APRN) and physician assistants provide world-class care at the only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer center in the state. In August 2017, Markey was designated as one of the top 50 cancer centers in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. In 2020, Markey rose to the No. 29 ranked cancer center in the nation. Our combined three-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited fellowship program offers our 12 fellows the opportunity to work with a range of hematologic and oncologic disorders in a variety of settings in the Bluegrass ranging from inner-city population to the underserved Appalachian region.
