Day F. Hills, MD
Dr. Day Hills went to medical school “because biological science is fascinating and patient care just drew me naturally," she says.
Before entering medical oncology Dr. Hills practiced internal medicine for three years. “During that time I diagnosed several patients with cancer. I wanted to follow them and learn more about their disease and help in their care. That’s what led me to oncology."
Dr. Hills is a full time clinician who also enrolls patients in clinical studies when appropriate. "It’s one of our strengths as an institution," she says, "and how oncology moves forward."
Outside of work, Dr. Hills enjoys bird watching, bicycling, reading, travel and fun with friends.
