I’m a radiation oncologist at the OSUCCC – James. I received my medical education and PhD from The Chicago Medical School, focusing my thesis on transcriptional regulation during skeletal myogenesis. I completed my residency at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, working in the Department of Radiation Oncology.

I have been published numerous times in journals such as Experimental Cell Research and Neuropsychopharmacology. I’ve presented at meetings across the country, speaking not only to medical professionals, but to students as well. In 2016, I was awarded the Roentgen Resident/Fellow Research Award. I have also worked on multiple clinical trials on counseling and educating potential patients.

The OSUCCC – James and the surrounding community provide me with the opportunities I need to provide the most personalized care possible for my patients. At The James, we’re encouraged to work collaboratively to improve the health of our patients and to research potential cures. I am truly proud of my efforts to better the lives of our patients and the fields of cancer research and treatment.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the university requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their university responsibilities. As of 12/20/2018, Dr. Mitchell has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
