Dr. Finkler currently serves as the chief clinical officer for the entire AdventHealth Central Florida Division and leads the entire continuum of clinical care across the seven-county region that includes nearly 6,000 physicians and advance practice providers.
Finkler joined AdventHealth Orlando in 1992 where he founded the gynecologic oncology program and fellowship program. He led the gynecologic oncology program until 2010 when he became the chief medical officer for AdventHealth Medical Group, a coalition of employed physicians and advanced practice providers. In 2014, Finkler accepted his most recent leadership role as senior vice president and chief medical officer for AdventHealth Orlando – Acute Care Services, which encompasses all hospitals in Orange, Osceola, Polk and Seminole counties.
His almost 30 years of service at AdventHealth speaks to his commitment to patients. Nearly three decades ago, he founded our gynecologic oncology program and fellowship program and brought national prominence to this discipline, which continues to this day.
Finkler is board certified in both obstetrics oncology and gynecologic oncology, has served in multiple leadership and teaching positions at AdventHealth, Boston University School of Medicine, Harvard Medical School and the University of Central Florida College of Medicine, and held the title of principal investigator for all GYN Oncology Group clinical trials, a National Cancer Institute cooperative group.
He completed his medical training at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York (now renamed as Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai) and conducted his OB-GYN residency and fellowship in gynecologic oncology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital at Harvard Medical School.
Finkler is a Fellow of The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (FACOG) and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS). He is also the recipient of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Clinical Trial Participation Award, the Boston University Medical Center’s prestigious C. Thomas Griffiths Memorial Lifetime Achievement Award and he is a highly published author and well-regarded speaker both nationally and internationally.
