Matthew Cooperberg, MD, MPH
Matthew Cooperberg graduated from Dartmouth College, where he finished summa cum laude with a major in English. He earned his MD and MPH degrees at Yale University in 2000, and completed residency in Urology and fellowship in Urologic Oncology at UCSF under Dr. Peter Carroll. At the end of his training, Dr. Cooperberg joined the faculty at UCSF, and since 2009 has maintained busy clinical practices at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center and the San Francisco VA Medical Center.
Since his first days at UCSF, Dr. Cooperberg has been actively engaged in research approaching the challenges of prostate cancer from many related angles. Through work with the CaPSURE registry and other data sources, he has written or contributed to over 290 research articles. In 2013 he was awarded the Helen Diller Family Chair in Urology, and in the same year, following a particularly lively public debate with one of the USPSTF members, earned a secondary appointment in the Epidemiology and Biostatistics Department.
Early in 2013 Dr. Cooperberg co-authored a proposal for a national urology registry which served as the basis for the AUA Quality (AQUA) Registry, a project for which he now serves as Senior Physician Advisor. In 2015 he won the AUA Gold Cystoscope Award.
He lives with his wife, Jacqueline Dolev (a Stanford and UCSF trained Dermatologist), in San Francisco, and primarily tries to keep up with their children, Jake (9) and Sarah (5).
