Physician Profile

Tina Mayer, MD
Medical Oncologist

I came to the Cancer Institute of New Jersey in 2009, having completed an oncology fellowship at Yale School of Medicine, which was preceded by a residency at Tufts Medical Center and a medical school education at Cornell University.  

I have a particular focus in two areas of oncology -- primary cancers of the brain and cancers of the genitourinary system (prostate, bladder, testis and kidney). Within these areas of specialty, I provide patients with a comprehensive evaluation and help educate them about their disease so that they can make informed decisions about their treatment options.  This is done collaboratively all under one roof at the Cancer Institute with experts across multi-disciplines in the Neuro-oncology and the Urologic Oncology Program. Radiation and surgical oncologists, nurses, social workers, nutritionists and other experts are all part of the team.

I am involved in conducting clinical trials within my areas of specialty and serve as a master clinician, which means I am helping to train and educate the next generation of medical students, residents and medical oncologists.

I feel very fortunate to have a position in which I can make a meaningful impact on the lives of both my patients as well as the education of those training for a career in medicine.
