Dr. Raman Battish is the Medical Director of Gastroenterology at CTCA at Eastern Regional Medical Center.

Prior to joining CTCA, Dr. Battish worked as an interventional endoscopist at a hospital in Philadelphia, and as a Clinical Assistant Professor at Drexel University College of Medicine.

Dr. Battish earned a medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. Following medical school, he completed an internal medicine residency at Jefferson University Hospital. His perspective on cancer care was forever changed by his mother's personal battle with cancer during his medical training.

He then completed a three-year fellowship in Gastroenterology from Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC, followed by a year-long fellowship in Advanced Endoscopy at the University of California, Los Angeles. Dr. Battish and his wife returned to the Philadelphia area to be closer to family.

Dr. Battish holds a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from the University of Delaware in Newark, DE. He subsequently completed a Post-Baccalaureate Special Science Program at the University of Pennsylvania, during which time he also served as a Clinical Research Coordinator at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
