Dr. Oberstein received his M.D. degree from Ohio State University College of Medicine in 2006 and completed residency in internal medicine at Temple University.

During this training, Dr Oberstein was selected as Chief Fellow.

Dr. Oberstein cares for patients with GI malignancies with a focus, in close collaboration with the Pancreas Center at Columbia University, on developing novel clinical trials for patients with pancreatic cancer. Dr. Oberstein is conducting research to elucidate the complex interplay between tumor associated stroma and epithelial cells utilizing mouse models of pancreatic cancer in the Olive Lab in the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center. The goal of this research is to develop greater understanding of the mechanism of chemoresistance and conduct pre-clinical tests of novel therapeutics in order to expand treatment options for patients with advanced cancer.
