The American Board of Internal Medicine certification recognizes clinical competence at a level above that required for licensure. Those physicians who successfully complete the requirements and pass the board examinations have documented their commitment to the highest level of professionalism in patient care.

Board certification is the industry benchmark by which physician quality is measured and recognized. Board certification requires that physicians demonstrate the currency of their knowledge -– and their ability to use it -– by passing a rigorous and challenging examination and by assessing their knowledge and performance in practice on an ongoing basis.

Dr. Narayan joined Lafayette Cancer Care in September 2009. She obtained her medical degree from Goa Medical College in Bambolim, Goa, India and then pursued a PhD in biochemistry at Tulane University Medical Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. Following that, she finished a post-doctoral research fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She then completed a residency in Internal Medicine at St. Luke’s Hospital, Chesterfield, Missouri and a fellowship in Hematology and Medical Oncology at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Ohio.
