Contact: Dr. Wood:
Dr. Anthony Wood was born at John C. Lincoln Medical Center and raised in the Phoenix metro area. He attended Arizona State University as a National Merit Scholar, earning degrees in Biology and Biochemistry and receiving the Moeur Award for academic excellence upon graduation. He obtained his M.D. from the Baylor College of Medicine where he sought additional training in medical ethics and was inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society.
He completed his internal medicine residency at the Indiana University School of Medicine. During his time there he won first place at the national medical jeopardy competition organized by the American College of Physicians, and he received the Walter J. Daly Award for Outstanding Resident for demonstrating professional excellence as selected by his peers. He signed on for an additional year of training at Indiana University as the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Chief Resident gaining experience in evaluating system processes at healthcare organizations to improve patient care. Thereafter, he completed his fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at the University of South Florida/Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida.
During these years of training, he published peer-reviewed research articles in Hemasphere, Blood Advances, the Oncologist, Clinical Cancer Research, Transplantation and Cellular Therapy, and Investigational New Drugs, among others. In 2022, he received the Robert Korngold Award from the Transplantation and Cellular Therapy editors for the best clinical science in cellular therapy article published in their medical journal during that calendar year.
Outside of work, he enjoys playing guitar and cheering on Arizona sports teams. But most of all, he enjoys spending time with his family and his wife, Beatrice, whom he has been with since taking math class together at Arizona State University in 2011. It is very exciting for him to be back in the Phoenix metro area to serve the community that he considers home. He has a strong sense of duty towards patient care, striving to be a reliable, caring, and communicative physician to all that he encounters.
