Dr. Chern is a Gynecologic Oncologist. After earning her Master’s Degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Dr. Chern completed her Medical Degree at the College of Medicine, University of South Florida. She subsequently completed her Residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the College of Medicine, University of South Florida, where she served as Administrative Chief Resident and Scientific Review Committee Member. During her residency training, Dr. Chern received a Galloway Fellowship, awarding her the opportunity to perform a rotation at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Dr. Chern completed her Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship at New York University School of Medicine, where she earned a Certificate in Translational Research Methodologies under the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at New York University.Dr. Chern’s research interest includes evaluating quality and safety measures to improve surgical outcomes in patients with malignancies. Her research focuses on the utility of multigene panel testing with next-generation sequencing in women with endometrial cancer, as well as the role of genetic counseling and testing in capturing women at high risk for endometrial and ovarian cancers. Dr. Chern's research also focuses on the impact of genetics in the development of these cancers in women. Dr. Chern has worked as part of a multi-disciplinary team to develop new protocols and safety measures with the goal of improving post-operative outcomes and patient satisfaction. In addition, her research is focused on understanding genetic mutations and its relationship to gynecologic malignancy. Her work has been presented at national meetings.
