Dr. Richard Curry Earns a Rare Neuro-Oncology Certification


CONTACT: Cindy Starr

CINCINNATI — Richard Curry, MD, has earned a coveted neuro-oncology certification from the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties.

Dr. Curry, a neuro-oncologist at the University of Cincinnati Neuroscience Institute and the UC Cancer Institute, is one of only 149 board-certified neuro-oncologists in the United States and one of only two in the Greater Cincinnati region. He is an important member of the UC Brain Tumor Center, which straddles the neuroscience and cancer institutes.

“Dr. Curry’s certification in neuro-oncology serves as a strong, independent endorsement of the knowledge and skills that he brings to a challenging profession,” says Ronald Warnick, MD, Medical Director of the UC Brain Tumor Center and the John M. Tew, Jr., MD, Chair in Neurosurgical Oncology. “Patients who receive care from Dr. Curry can rest assured that they are being treated by one of the field’s best and brightest.”

An Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Hematology-Oncology and Assistant Professor of Neurology and Rehabilitation Medicine, Dr. Curry is also certified by the American Board of Neurology and Psychiatry.

Dr. Curry earned his MD from the University of Toledo and performed his residency in neurology at UC. He pursued a fellowship in neuro-oncology at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York and returned to UC as an attending physician in 2012.
