About Me

I’m a general medical oncologist with additional focus on hematology and thrombosis. I have extensive experience treating patients with solid tumors and hematologic disorders. As a member of both the Head and Neck Medical Oncology and the general hematology oncology groups at the OSUCCC – James, I’m able to apply my broad-based knowledge to treat a variety of cancer patients and hematologic issues. I feel fortunate every day to work with the brave patients and caring staff at our facilities.

I serve as medical director of oncology at JamesCare at University Hospital East and as an assistant professor in the Department of Internal Medicine. There’s a tremendous amount of camaraderie and mutual respect here, and I’m honored to be a part of this world-class organization.

At The James, we value a multidisciplinary approach to care. I enjoy collaborating with colleagues, patients, patients’ family members and outside healthcare providers to come up with individualized treatment plans. We are not reluctant to utilize innovative, cutting-edge approaches and therapies.

Finding ways to improve cancer treatment is another important part of my career. I’m a member of several clinical trial cooperative groups, including the Leukemia Group B (CALGB), the Cancer Trials Support Unit (CTSU), the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) as well as the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG).

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 03/28/2017, Dr. Rupert has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
