Sandhya Mudumbi MDMedical Director of Palliative Care, Tennessee Oncology, a partner of OneOncology, Nashville, TN
Dr. Mudumbi is a Nashville native and is the medical director of the palliative care program at Tennessee Oncology. She grew up in Nashville, went to medical school at SUNY-Stony Brook University School of Medicine, completed her Internal Medicine residency and fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and is board certified in Internal Medicine and Hospice and Palliative Medicine. Subsequently she joined clinical practice at UAB in both the outpatient palliative care clinic as well as serving as attending physician on the inpatient palliative care unit and consultative service. During this time she also completed an NIH T32 postdoctoral research fellowship at UAB with a focus on understanding the palliative care needs in patients with end-stage liver disease. She has given numerous national presentations at the Annual Assembly of Hospice and Palliative Medicine and the Center to Advance Palliative Care. She moved in 2019 to Nashville with her husband Dr. Yarlagadda, a Urologist in Clarksville, TN and served as hospice medical director at Aseracare hospice. Though she greatly values hospice care, she then transitioned to becoming the medical director for the Palliative Care program at Tennessee Oncology in May 2020 because her passion lies is in integrating early palliative care in advanced cancer. She is excited to increase access to palliative care for cancer patients at Tennessee Oncology.
