Dr Copeman is a practising oncology specialist. He has been involved in cancer research and treatment since 1985. He studied medicine at the University of Sydney, and then completed a doctorate in cancer research at the University of Oxford.

Since 2000 Dr Copeman has lectured on new cancer medicines in 90 cities, across 30 countries around the world. He has provided advice about the development of new medicines to many of the world’s major pharmaceutical companies.

Dr Copeman is a member of the Clinical Oncological Society of Australia, the American Societies of Clinical Oncology and of Haematology and the American Society of Paediatric Haematology / Oncology. He is a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians.
Dr Copeman’s philosophy is that the patient comes first:
- first in considering which tests to have;
- first in considering what treatments to pursue; and
- first in deciding where and how they want their care provided
If you or a relative are worried about cancer, the tests involved or the treatment recommended, please ask your doctor about a referral to see Dr Copeman.
Dr Copeman can review your current condition, help with screening and test review, provide personalised treatment selection, and referral to a treatment centre. He can assist with guiding the patient and their family through each stage of treatment.
