Ariel Schulman
Clinical Associate in the Department of Surgery

I am a fellow in Urologic Oncology completing subspecialty training in the management of adrenal, kidney, bladder, prostate, and other genitourinary malignancies. I believe in a multidisciplinary approach to care and providing patients with all of the available treatment options, including active surveillance, before proceeding with a course of therapy. My research interests include the use of minimally-invasive interventions, enhanced surgical recovery pathways and healthcare resource distribution.
