Andrew Iliff, M.D.

Medical Oncologist

About

Patient physician relationship is the most important part of medical care. Knowing more, I can create a tailored treatment plan that best fits the needs of the patient.

College:University of Missouri-Kansas City

Medical School:University of Missouri-Kansas City

Residency:Internal Medicine Residency Kansas University Medical Center Kansas City, Kansas

Fellowship:Hematology/Oncology Fellowship University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics Iowa City, Iowa

Special Interests:The patient-physician relationship is unique in the field of oncology since we tend to meet our patients during a stressful and grave period but continue to care for them through many ups and downs. The relationship that is built with each patient and family over time is very important to me. The specialty of oncology continues to advance with science and technology working together to allow for more and more options for patients which I think also drew me to the field.

Board Certification:Medical Oncology, Hematology

Family:I grew up in Kansas with my parents and three brothers and then spent 9 years in Kansas City for school and training. I met my wife, Ann Iliff, while we were in medical school at University of Missouri- Kansas City. I completed my residency at University of Kansas and then my Hematology/ Oncology fellowship at the University of Iowa. While we loved our time in Iowa City, we are thrilled to be in Columbia now.

Personal Interests:I enjoyed science classes from a young age onward, so pursuing a career in health care, where I could both help people and focus on the sciences, seemed like a natural fit. During high school, I heard about the 6 year program at UMKC and how it was tailored to early patient care. I decided that would be the ideal path for what I was looking for and a career in medicine.

Additional Interests:The most important and rewarding part of my job is being able to step into that situation and help bring some organization and comfort to the chaos. My hope is that by the time a patient and their family leave a visit, they have a better understanding of the diagnosis and are comfortable with the plan.

Publications:Adequacy of peripheral blood stem cell mobilization in patients with relapsed B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma treated with bendamustine. Leukemia & lymphoma. 2016; 57 (5) : 1189-90

Activities:Outside of work, I love spending time with my wife, my family and friends. Ann and I love traveling to new places and learning about different cities. If you have local recommendations for us to try in Columbia, please share them with us. I am also a huge Kansas City Chiefs and Royals fan.
