Overview

Dr. Amber Orman is an Assistant Member in the Department of Radiation Oncology, with a secondary appointment in the Department of Oncologic Sciences at the University of South Florida. Dr. Orman’s clinical focus is breast cancer, with an emphasis on holistic care that encompasses both mind and body. Dr. Orman’s primary research interest is in integrative therapies and their applications to cancer prevention, treatment and survivorship. She is especially focused on nutrition and the microbiome. Dr. Orman graduated summa cum laude from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology with a degree in Applied Biology. Upon graduation, she received the John T. Royse Award, which is presented to the senior who on the basis of academic achievement, student leadership, and citizenship is considered by the faculty and staff to be the most outstanding graduate. Dr. Orman then received her MD degree from the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis. There, she was awarded with the John H. Edwards Fellowship, one of Indiana University’s most prestigious academic awards based on good citizenship, character, scholastic ability and intellectual capacity. She then completed her Radiation Oncology residency at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, where she served as Chief Resident. Dr. Orman has published on a wide variety of topics including prostate cancer, pediatric retinoblastoma, occult primary breast cancer, and head and neck cancer, and she has presented research at multiple national meetings. For her accomplishments, she was awarded the Radiological Society of North America Roentgen Resident/Fellow Research Award. She joined the Moffitt Cancer Center Department of Radiation Oncology Breast Section in 2015. Dr. Orman believes in treating not only the cancer at hand, but also the whole patient. She believes in interventions that improve outcomes as well as quality of life, both during and after treatment. Dr. Orman also focuses on health promotion strategies during cancer survivorship, with the goals of decreasing the risk of a subsequent battle with cancer, minimizing co-morbidities, and improving overall health long term.
