Paul Wheatley-Price

Assistant Professor of Medicine, University of Ottawa
Division of Medical Oncology
Chair of Medical Advisory Committee, Lung Cancer Canada

Dr Paul Wheatley-Price attended medical school in the UK, at the University of St. Andrews (1991-1994) and the University of Manchester (1994-1997), subsequently training in internal medicine in Manchester and London. He then received specialist medical oncology training in Wellington, New Zealand (2001–2003), back in London at the Royal Free Hospital, Guy’s and St. Thomas' Hospitals and St. George’s Hospital (2003-2006), and subsequently as a Fellow in Lung Cancer Research at Princess Margaret Hospital, Toronto, under the supervision of Dr. Frances Shepherd (2007-2008).

Since September 2009, Dr. Wheatley-Price has been on faculty at The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre / University of Ottawa as an Assistant Professor in Medical Oncology. Clinically, he treats lung cancer and breast cancer.

His research interests are in thoracic oncology (with a sub-interest in mesothelioma and thymic malignancies); in developing prognostic tools in understudied clinical scenarios, and in research and education programs in the area of advance decision making. He also has an active role in the regulatory processes of opening clinical trials. He is actively involved in teaching and mentoring at the University of Ottawa Medical School, and has won prizes for excellence in teaching.

Dr. Wheatley-Price is increasingly involved in the realm of lung cancer advocacy, and in 2014 became Chair of the Medical Advisory Committee for Lung Cancer Canada.
