Dr. Shogan was the Director and Chief Business Officer at the UPMC Cancer Centers, and Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He was educated as an under- graduate at Yale University. After two years with the Peace Corps in Thailand and one year with TCOM (Telecommunications subsidiary of Westinghouse) in Nigeria, he completed an internal medicine residency at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

Post fellowship, he remained at Duke for one year on faculty within the Bone Marrow Transplant Program. He then returned to Pittsburgh where he founded and directed the Bone Marrow Transplant Program at Allegheny General Hospital. During this period, he co-managed a private practice group which grew to approximately 30 physicians seeing over 12,500 new patients a year. In 2000, the group merged into UPMC creating one of the largest cancer care networks in the United States. Dr. Shogan played an integral role in a radical reorganization and the growth of the UPMC Cancer Centers network along a service line model. Through a series of joint ventures, as well as the formation of new business entities, the network has expanded both nationally and internationally.
