“City of Hope was an ideal home for me because...I like to be at the cutting edge of cancer research and treatment.”
A self-described “people person,” Nicholas M. Donin, M.D. sees the practice of medicine as the perfect combination of a lifelong interest in science and a strong desire to make a difference in people's lives. He derives great satisfaction from his interaction with patients, “explaining our thought processes and figuring out together how to best manage each patient's unique situation.”
Dr. Donin is a board-eligible surgeon specializing in urology and urologic oncology. After graduating from Harvard University he received his medical degree from Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City and completed his internship and residency at New York University's Langone Medical Center.
Dr. Donin joins City of Hope after serving a urologic oncology fellowship at UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine. He's excited about the opportunity to engage in City of Hope's extensive research and clinical trials, at a time when the pace of new developments is accelerating, “with new and better care coming faster and faster.”
