Rita Mukhtar, M.D. is a General and Breast Oncologic Surgeon at UCSF. Dr Mukhtar completed her undergraduate education at UC Berkeley, where she studied music and molecular biology. She then attended medical school at UCSF, during which time she received a Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship and pursued research in the inflammatory response in sepsis, winning a resident research award. She remained at UCSF for General Surgery residency, and completed a two year post-doctoral research fellowship focusing on the role of inflammatory cells in breast cancer outcomes, funded by the California Breast Cancer Research Program.

During this time she received a scholarship from the UCSF Clinical and Translational Science Institute to complete a certificate in Advanced Training in Clinical Research. After residency, she completed a fellowship in breast oncologic surgery, while serving as a clinical instructor in general surgery. She currently practices acute care general surgery and breast surgery, including treatment of benign and malignant breast disease. Her research interest is in genetic causes of breast cancer, prevention, and treatment.
