Dr. Singhal is originally from San Mateo and went to Baltimore to receive her undergraduate degree in Biophysics at Johns Hopkins University. She then attended the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York where she completed her M.D. program while also receiving a Ph.D. in Molecular Pharmacology.
Dr. Singhal has extensive training in the cellular and molecular bases for cancer as well as the chemo, radiological, and surgical treatment of the disease. It provides Dr. Singhal a comprehensive view of cancer and a better opportunity to treat the disease.
When Dr. Singhal was completing her residency, she was amazed by the incredible improvement that complex surgery could have on health of cancer patients. This inspired her to focus her medical career on surgical oncology. She went on to complete a fellowship in Surgical Oncology at the City of Hope National Cancer Center, a leader in Minimally Invasive Surgical Oncology (MISO). Her research there focused on discovering the interactions of chemotherapy and a wide spectrum of natural agents, and the impact on liver function. She completed her Surgical Residency at the University of Washington in Seattle in one of the nation’s top surgical training programs. Dr. Singhal completed her MD and PhD from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. She completed her PhD there in the department of Molecular Pharmacology with the thesis, Studies in the Regulation of the mdr1b gene by Progesterone.
