Before joining OncoCare Cancer Centre at Mount Elizabeth Hospital, Singapore, Dr Akhil Chopra was a Senior Consultant in Medical Oncology at Johns Hopkins Singapore, Tan Tock Seng Hospital and Adjunct Associate Professor at Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine.
Dr Chopra completed his medical school training from Delhi University, India in 2001. He is American Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Hematology and Medical Oncology. He completed his fellowship training in Hematology and Medical Oncology from Hahnemann University Hospital/Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, USA.
As a result of his comprehensive training in the USA in Internal Medicine, Hematology and Medical Oncology and his most professional appointment as a Senior Consultant in Johns Hopkins Singapore and Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Dr Chopra is vastly experienced in treating multiple cancer types including lung cancer, breast cancer, cancers of stomach, colon, rectum, liver, prostate, kidney, testicular and the bladder, gynaecological cancers such as ovarian and uterine/cervical cancers; as well as lymphomas and chronic leukaemia’s/multiple myeloma. He also has experience in treating more rare cancers like sarcoma and neuroendocrine tumors. However, Dr Chopra does not manage patients suffering from acute leukaemias or perform bone marrow transplants and would refer these patients to his colleagues as appropriate.
As a senior specialist in cancer medicine, he has a wide experience managing cancer patients from various countries such as India, United Arab Emirates and other middle-eastern countries, USA, European countries as well as Asian nations including Bangladesh, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia, Malaysia and Indonesia with help of interpreters.
