Jeffrey D. Hancock, MD
Born and raised in Rexburg, Idaho, Dr. Jeffrey Hancock’s goal has always been to provide the best care possible to the residents of Southeastern Idaho as close to home as possible. As a Presidential Scholar, Hancock earned an Associate of Arts and Sciences from Ricks College, where he graduated with high honors, and then went on to earn a Bachelor of Science from Brigham Young University, where he was a University Scholar. He earned his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Utah, where he also graduated with honors.
Dr. Hancock completed a Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine Residency at the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Medicine in Rochester Minnesota. He then returned to the University of Utah to complete a Pediatric Hematology/Oncology fellowship at the Huntsman Cancer Institute and Primary Children’s Hospital.
He finally realized his goal of being able to serve the population of Southeast Idaho when he returned home to join Dr. Dickson in his private practice at Teton Oncology. Since then they have forged further partnerships with medical and radiation oncologists to form the Teton Cancer Institute. Dr. Hancock currently serves as the Medical Director of the Institute.
Dr. Hancock is an Adjunct Associate Professor of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at the University of Utah. He is board certified as a Diplomate from the American Board of Pediatrics and the American Board of Pediatrics Sub-board of Hematology/Oncology.
He has been a member of the American Medical Association; Minnesota Medical Association; Utah Medical Association; American Academy of Pediatrics; and is currently a member of the Mayo Alumni Association and Idaho Medical Association. He is also an investigator with the NIH’s National Cancer Institute and Children’s Oncology Group. He is licensed to practice medicine in Idaho.
“My partner, Dr. Dickson, had built up an excellent reputation to become the referral center for patients returning from the Huntsman Cancer Institute back to Eastern Idaho, and I’ve enjoyed the privilege of coming back to Idaho to join his practice.”
