Ilana Rachel Yurkiewicz
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Primary Care and Population Health
BioI am a physician in internal medicine and oncology. I spend my time directly caring for patients, advocating for them as a medical journalist, and researching ways to improve their lives.
I have a special interest in cancer survivorship and improving transitions between oncology and primary care. I am privileged to have a growing primary care clinic with a unique focus in providing comprehensive care for patients with a history of cancer as well as those carrying genetic diagnoses conferring elevated risk. I feel incredibly fortunate to do this work, and my goal is to provide thoughtful, compassionate, and holistic care for all my patients.
As a journalist, I strive to bridge the gaps between academic medicine and everyday lives. I am a former AAAS Mass Media Fellow, and I was a regular columnist for Scientific American and MDEdge. My writing has also appeared in Undark Magazine, Health Affairs, STAT News, Aeon Magazine, Science Progress, and The News & Observer and has been republished in The Atlantic and The Best American Science and Nature Writing anthology.
I have an academic interest in bioethics. I interned with the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, and I have done ethics research on return of incidental findings in medicine and research. My ethics papers have been published in the New England Journal of Medicine, Penn Bioethics Journal, and Ivy Journal of Ethics.
Finally, the intersection of my work is intentional. Above all else I care about improving the lives of patients, and I am grateful for a chance to do it through my one-on-one work as a doctor and on a broader scale through my writing and research.
