Dr. Jocelyn Chapman specializes in the surgical and medical treatment of gynecologic malignancies. She cares for patients with both cancerous and complex noncancerous diseases of the female reproductive system. In addition to expertise in the aggressive surgical management of advanced ovarian and uterine cancers, she has special training in minimally invasive procedures (laparoscopic and robotic surgery), benefiting appropriately selected patients.

Chapman's clinical research focuses on enhancing surgical and preoperative processes to ensure that all gynecologic cancer patients at UCSF receive safe, superior care. With her expertise in computational genomics, she also collaborates with UCSF cancer researchers to better understand the genetic vulnerabilities in gynecologic cancer and to use them for targeted therapies. Her research has been published in Gynecologic Oncology, Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and Nature Biotechnology.

Chapman earned her medical degree from Boston University School of Medicine. She completed her residency at UCSF and received specialty training through the joint Stanford-UCSF gynecologic oncology fellowship.
