Vasthi C. Wilson, MD, MSc, is a radiation oncologist at Atlanticare Regional Medical Center (ARMC). After graduating summa cum laude from Wellesley College, she was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. She then attended Oxford University (England) and received a Masters degree (with distinction) in Neurosciences. With early training in Neuroscience and Philosophy, she realized her lifelong dream was to become a physician. She went on to graduate from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, with Honors in surgery and neurosurgery externships. After medical school and internship, she focused on the care of cancer patients completing her four-year residency program in radiation oncology at the University of Pennsylvania. During her radiation oncology training, she mastered the most modern technologies and in-depth review of the oncology literature across many disciplines.
During this time she also married and welcomed three children to her family, Logan (9), Abigail (6), and Connor (4).
Prior to joining New Jersey Health Network, she was on Faculty at the University of Pennsylvania and was recognized as Healthcare Hero at the nation’s first hospital (Pennsylvania). As Assistant Professor of Clinical Radiation Oncology, she was a leader in multidisciplinary conferences and initiated new radiation modalities and at the same time, she found teaching residents in the academic setting to be stimulating and rewarding.

She has also published in multiple medical and scientific journals.

DR WILSON’S ΡΗΙLΟSΟΡΗΥ ΑΝD ΑΡΡRΟΑΟCΗ ΤΟ WΕLLΝΕSS
My dedication to cure this disease began as a child, caring for my grandfather suffering from colorectal cancer. It deepened my understanding of the questions and concerns patients have. In my practice, same day appointments will allow a prompt response to any acute illness or pressing concerns. Patients are offered ample appointment time to allow for unhurried decisions, as well as discuss the state of the art radiation treatment, custom nutrition, and education resources available. I strive to empower my patients to optimize their health and longevity. As a member of Atlanticare/New Jersey Health Network, I enjoy being the personal physician for patients in the South Jersey area, and I wish to partner with my patients to allow them to feel their best.
