Special clinical interest in breast, colorectal and gastrointestinal malignancies.
Dr Ramya Venkateswaran trained in general medical oncology across all solid tumour types, but focuses on the treatment of breast cancers and gastrointestinal tract cancers, including oesophageal, gastric, colorectal and pancreatic cancers. She is particularly interested in the emerging role of personalised therapies and genomics, as well the interaction of complementary therapies with chemotherapy and immunotherapy.

This was followed by a year of Breast Cancer Research at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and a Clinical Fellowship at Prince of Wales Hospital. She has been involved in teaching and lecturing at both University of Western Sydney and UNSW, as part of the oncology curriculum as well the undergraduate medical degree.
In addition to her work at GenesisCare, Ramya treats at other Sutherland shire treatment centres providing chemotherapy and immunotherapy services. She is multilingual and can speak English, Hindi and Tamil.
On weekends, she likes to watch Masterchef and explore culinary pursuits, read a good book and enjoys a glass of wine.
