He will focus on prostate cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer and testicular cancer.
“Patients are at the center of our cancer care program,” Karki said. “You can expect a collaborative approach wherein my team and I will work with each patient to provide individualized, evidence-based, comprehensive care.”

He completed a residency in internal medicine at MedStar Health in Baltimore, Maryland. He received his medical degree from B.P. Koirala Institute of Health Sciences in Dharan, Nepal.
Karki said he is eager to join an academic health system. “I strongly believe in a multidisciplinary approach and would like to make clinical trials accessible and available to my patients,” he said. “In addition, I enjoy sharing my knowledge with trainees.”
