Dr. Thambi grew up in the Midwest where a love of solving problems led him to engineering at Purdue University. After graduation, he worked as an engineer at a consulting company, but found that something was missing.
A desire to develop emotional connections with people and help them through difficult problems led him to The Ohio State University College of Medicine.
Residency and fellowship training were eye opening for him. Developing the knowledge to help people physically was tremendously fulfilling, but it was the emotional connection and learning that showed him oncology was the perfect choice.
He is an enthusiastic learner and continues to add to the medical knowledge and insight that is needed to guide people through their journey with cancer. Dr Thambi is also grateful for what these same people teach him about the importance of each moment and relationships in his life.
