Dr. Mitchell Ross joined Highlands Oncology in August of 2022. He earned his medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City, Kansas. Upon receiving his degree, Dr. Ross continued his training with a three-year Internal Medicine residency at the Creighton University Arizona Health Education Alliance Program at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona where he was chosen to serve as Chief Resident during his final year. He completed his training with a three-year Hematology and Medical Oncology fellowship at the University of Missouri School of Medicine – Ellis Fischel Cancer Center, during which time he was also appointed Chief Fellow.
Dr. Ross chose hematology/oncology because it requires lifelong learning and is a constantly evolving field. He values long-term patient relationships and the privilege of providing care when patients need it most. His goal is to provide the highest level of care to his patients while maintaining an open doctor-patient relationship and preserving patient autonomy. As the son of a family physician from small-town Kansas, Dr. Ross recognizes the value of receiving quality care close to home.
In his free time, Dr. Ross and his wife, Sarah, enjoy spending time with their dog, exploring Northwest Arkansas, trying new restaurants, going to concerts, and traveling to see family and friends. Dr. Ross is also an avid golfer and devoted Kansas Jayhawks and Kansas City Chiefs fan.
