Sameer Patel, MD

Sameer Patel, MD, assistant professor in the Department of Surgery, Division of Surgical Oncology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, has been named one of the country’s ‘40 Under 40’ in Cancer.

The 40 Under 40 in Cancer awards recognizes nominees by their actions in the field of cancer and leadership with their peers. The awardees were selected by a group of reviewers from diverse roles within oncology. The award is sponsored by the Lynx Group, Upstream Partners, Swim Across America and the National Community Oncology Dispensing Association, Inc. (NCODA).

“I am honored by this award and humbled to be considered a member with so many accomplished and inspiring people. Through the resources available at the UC Cancer Center and partnerships we have built around the country, we hope to continue to make strides to fight cancer,” Dr. Patel said.

Jeffrey Sussman, MD, Christian R. Holmes Professor and interim chair, Department of Surgery at the UC College of Medicine, noted in his nomination that Dr. Patel has a tremendous impact on resident education and clinical research at UC Health.
“Since joining us, Dr. Patel has published nearly 20 journal articles and several book chapters and has presented at prestigious national meetings. This year, he was awarded the Turcotte Award ($20,000) from the Central Surgical Association Foundation, as well as a $100,000 UC Cancer Center Innovative Concept Grant,” Dr. Sussman said.

In 2017, Dr. Patel joined the UC College of Medicine faculty after a three-year complex general surgical oncology fellowship at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Mansfield, Ohio. He received his medical degree from the Emory University School of Medicine where he also completed his research fellowship and general surgery residency. 

Award recipients were recognized on Oct. 15, 2020 as part of the Association for Value-Based Cancer Care’s 10th Annual Summit and Educational Program virtual event.
