    Mohammed Milhem, MD
    Clinical Associate Professor of Internal Medicine

    As deputy director for clinical cancer services at Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Iowa, Dr. Mohammed Milhem is one of the most innovative and successful clinicians in the department. In the past year, he has created new, and revitalized existing, multidisciplinary oncology groups, or MOGs. Under his direction, three types of MOGs (tumor boards, research groups, teaching conferences) have flourished, strengthening the interdisciplinary management of patients and research activities including clinical trials. His organizational and leadership skills are considerable and not only raise the bar in oncology services but also inspire other clinical disciplines.
