Ted Skolarus, MD, MPH
Dr. Skolarus is an Associate Professor in the Department of Urology at the University of Michigan and a Research Scientist at the VA Ann Arbor HSR&D Center for Clinical Management Research (CCMR). He completed a fellowship in urologic oncology and health services research at the University of Michigan after finishing his urologic surgery residency at Washington University in St. Louis. His research interests aim to better understand the delivery of prostate cancer survivorship care, support the ongoing needs of prostate cancer survivors and their providers, and identify opportunities to improve care coordination among cancer specialists and primary care providers. Dr. Skolarus has conducted both observational and intervention-related research in prostate cancer survivorship with particular attention to primary care provider roles and self-management in survivorship care. The goal of his VA Career Development Award research program is to better understand and, using state-of-the-art implementation science, improve the delivery of VHA prostate cancer survivorship care. His recently funded NCI R01 will examine de-implementation of low value chemical castration among men with prostate cancer.
