David Scott Miller, Professor and Chief of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, leads the team of gynecologic oncologists at UT Southwestern.  He is Medical Director for the Division's practice at the NCI-designated Harold C. Simmons Cancer Center.

Dr. Miller also serves as principal investigator for the National Cancer Institute’s Gynecologic Oncology Group program at UT Southwestern and participates in the cancer treatment protocols developed by that organization.

A graduate of the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, Dr. Miller completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the Hospital of the Medical College of Pennsylvania. After residency, he pursued a reproductive endocrinology fellowship at the University of California-San Diego and a gynecologic oncology fellowship at Stanford University Medical Center. Before joining the faculty at UT Southwestern in 1991, he practiced gynecologic oncology at Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago.

Widely-known as an authority on cancers of the female reproductive system, Dr. Miller is board certified in both obstetrics and gynecology and gynecologic oncology. He serves as an examiner for the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, where he participates in the oral examination of physicians seeking certification as specialists in gynecologic oncology.  He is a member of the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists, American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the American College of Surgeons.

Dr. Miller believes the gynecologic oncology team’s strength comes from its collaborative approach to health care and commitment to search for the best treatment options for women with cancer of the reproductive system. This approach goes beyond treatment of the cancer itself to include the patient’s nutrition and pain management as well as psychological and social adjustments.
