Dr. Karp’s goal of establishing Rahway Regional Cancer Center began in New York City, where he was born and raised. After high school, Dr. Karp attended Columbia University, where he worked extensively in tumor immunology and performed research in neurochemistry, graduating with honors. Dr. Karp continued his studies at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where he received his medical degree and was recognized for his outstanding achievements in the medical field with two prestigious fellowships from the National Institute of Health Research and a special commendation and honors in the Department of Medicine.
Discovering a passion for helping others in the medical field, Dr. Eric Karp pursued his medical license through a residency program at the prestigious Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. He worked in radiation oncology during the entirety of his residency, honing his already considerable expertise and growing as an oncologist. At Memorial Sloan Kettering, Dr. Karp was again recognized for his level of outstanding performance and was selected to serve as a Fellow of American Cancer Society in Clinical Oncology.
The Vision for RRCC
During his time at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Dr. Karp determined that he would one day build his own specialized cancer center from the ground up, granting patients across the nation access to a level of cancer care that was second to none. He realized how important it is for cancer patients to receive not just the best possible treatment, but also care that’s tailored to their unique needs. After his residency, Dr. Eric Karp embarked on a new journey to develop Rahway Regional Cancer Center in Rahway, New Jersey.
Now a freestanding, fully independent radiation oncology treatment facility, Rahway Regional Cancer Center uses the most advanced technologies for the most effective cancer treatments possible. Here, Dr. Karp employs comprehensive analysis to create and execute customized, coherent cancer care plans, treating his patients with the utmost care and respect.
