Reshma Jagsi, M.D., D.Phil., is Associate Professor and Deputy Chair for Faculty and Financial Operations in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Michigan Health System and a Research Investigator at the Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine. In addition to her medical training at Harvard Medical School, she served as a fellow in the Center for Ethics at Harvard University and completed her doctorate in Social Policy at Oxford University as a Marshall Scholar. Dr. Jagsi is board-certified in Radiation Oncology by the American Board of Radiology. She is active in organized medicine and currently serves as the Chair of the Research Committee of the Radiation Oncology Institute, as the Chair of ASCO’s Ethics Committee, and as a member of the Steering Committee of the AAMC Group on Women in Medicine and Science. She is the author of over 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals, serves as Senior Editor of the International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, Physics, and is on the editorial boards of the Journal of Clinical Oncology and JAMA Oncology.

Dr. Jagsi’s medical research focuses on improving the quality of care received by breast cancer patients, both by advancing the ways in which breast cancer is treated with radiation and by advancing the understanding of patient decision-making, cost, and access to appropriate care. Her social scientific research includes research into issues of bioethics arising from cancer care and research regarding gender issues, including studies of women's representation in the senior ranks of academic medicine, barriers to their advancement, and interventions intended to increase their representation.

Originally a Texas native, Dr. Jagsi resides in Ann Arbor, Michigan with her husband John Pottow, Professor of Law in bankruptcy and commercial law at the University of Michigan Law School, and their two children.
