Amy Siston, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist at UChicago Medicine (UCM) in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience. Dr. Siston has specialized in psycho-oncology for almost 30 years and was integral in building the Psycho-Oncology Service at UCM where she provides individual therapy to cancer patients throughout the cancer care continuum.

Dr. Siston’s research interests involve coping and adjustment to cancer diagnosis and treatment, survivorship and sexual health. Dr. Siston is also involved in training mental health professionals with interests in psycho-oncology and sexual health and has frequently lectured on topics of cancer survivorship.
