  • Assistant Professor of Medicine, Division of Hematology/Medical Oncology, School of Medicine


Dr. Pusateri specializes in caring for adults with solid tumor and blood cancers. She also provides care for adults with non-cancerous blood disorders. She chose to specialize in cancer care because she started her career as an oncology nurse and is passionate about providing patient-centered care. Her research interests are focused on reducing emergency visits for cancer patients and improving access to cancer treatment in the community.

Outside of the clinic, Dr. Pusateri and her partner enjoy hiking and snowshoeing with their two dogs and attending Portland Thorns games with her step-daughter. She is originally from Chicago and returns there several times per year to see her family.
