Biography

Paul Skelton, MD, is a hematologist/oncologist who specializes in treating genitourinary cancers, including kidney, bladder, prostate, and germ cell tumors. He sees patients at Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center and UVA Cancer Center Pantops.

Born and raised in Tampa, Florida, Dr. Skelton studied chemistry at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. He then attended medical school and completed his residency training at the University of Florida in Gainesville, where he was selected as chief resident. He went on to complete his hematology/oncology fellowship at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa.

Being a doctor was a childhood goal for Dr. Skelton. His involvement in Relay for Life, and seeing family members deal with a cancer diagnosis, led him to explore the field of oncology during medical school. The more he learned, the more he realized it was exactly what he wanted to do.

In his free time, Dr. Skelton enjoys hiking and being outdoors. He’s also a big sports fan, particularly football and basketball.
