John Mulhall/Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Dr. John P. Mulhall is the director of both the Male Sexual and Reproductive Medicine Program and the Sexual Medicine Research Laboratory at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. He holds an adjunct position as professor of urology in the Department of Urology at Weill Cornell Medical College.

Born in Dublin, John was an avid rugby player and captained the all-Ireland universities during their 1987 tour to Korea and Japan. He received his medical degree in 1985 from University College Dublin and, following his move stateside in 1989, his reproductive medicine and surgery fellowship training at Boston University Medical Center. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Robert P. Nelson Award from the Sexual Medicine Society of North America and the Gold Cystoscope Award from the American Urological Association. He is associate editor of the Journal of Sexual Medicine and the author of Saving Your Sex Life: A Guide for Men with Prostate Cancer.

John travels back to Ireland regularly to visit family and see Ireland play rugby in Dublin’s Aviva stadium. “It’s hard not to be proud of my country with so many accomplishments in arts and sports,” he says. “Ultimately, I am most proud of the medical education that I received which has led to the accomplishments and success that I have achieved in my career and, through this, have been able to contribute to the U.S. during my time in Chicago and New York.”
