Welcome Dr. Kapadia!

Dr. Nirav Kapadia is a full time staff physician, the Medical Director of Radiation Oncology services at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Northern Cancer Center, and the inaugural Medical Director of the Levy Serious Illness Healthcare Delivery Incubator. In addition to clinical work, his research and administrative interests are focused on value creation in health care delivery, by focusing on intersection between quality improvement and health services research and policy.

Before joining Dartmouth, Dr. Kapadia was chief resident of radiation oncology at the University of Michigan where he developed interests in health care administration and health service research. While on the faculty at Dartmouth, he has researched the variation in use of radiation therapy, while completing a Master’s degree in healthcare leadership from The Dartmouth Institute, focused upon integrating health services research methods, statistical and financial analysis, provider communication, quality improvement approaches and management skills to improve the value of health care delivery. Ongoing research with collaborators at TDI and around the nation focuses on financial toxicity experienced by cancer patients, the effects of bundled payments on cancer care, the use of Medicare claims data analysis to understand variation in cancer treatment among healthcare workers as well as the impact of structural norms on aggressive cancer care at the end of life. As Medical Director of the Levy Incubator, Dr. Kapadia oversees the selection and execution of multidisciplinary teams charged with rethinking how to deliver health care to seriously ill patients.

Dr. Kapadia currently sits on three national committees tasked with payment reform and quality—the American Society of Therapeutic Radiation Oncology Payment Reform, Quality Measurement, and Payer Relations Committees. He earned his AB in Biophysical Chemistry at Dartmouth College, his MD at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and completed his clinical training in internal medicine and radiation oncology at the University of Michigan.
