Jami Rothman, MD, ScM, is a breast surgical oncology clinical fellow in the Department of Surgery. Dr. Rothman received her BS from Cornell University in 2002, and her ScM in Health and Social Policy from Harvard University in 2006. While at Harvard, she studied the impact of racism and poverty on cancer prevention in low-income populations, as well as the intertwining of provider- and systems-level interventions to measure their effects on cancer screening and early detection.

Dr. Rothman went on to receive her MD from the University at Buffalo in 2012, where she stayed to complete her general surgery residency. During residency, Dr. Rothman's research focused on the active surveillance of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), as well as the application of precision medicine to the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.

Dr. Rothman is additionally interested in the racial and ethnic disparities in breast cancer surgery delay and the subsequent effects on stage migration and upstaging of disease.
