Phyllis Bussey

Oncology Division Manager
School of Medicine
Years at Stanford: 
30 years
Honored: 
2017

What I enjoyed most about my time at Stanford is . . .
Working with brilliant, although challenging researchers.

What is your favorite place at Stanford and why?
Rodin Sculpture garden.  It's the largest collection of Rodin outside of Paris.  The light on the figures in the morning is beautiful. Driving down University Avenue towards Memorial Church in the morning is also very beautiful.

Point of Pride: Tell us briefly about an event projects, program or initiative you were involved with at Stanford that you're most proud of.
Each stone on a mountain gently reflects the shape of the mountain itself.  And thus is a person's life, each day reflects the whole life.  I am proud every single day I walk in the door of everything I do for the Division of Oncology.

Leave your Legacy: What piece of guidance or advice would you give t o a new hire to Stanford?
Plan to stay for a long time and plan to work really hard.  There's more to being successful than just showing up.

Congratulations from your Sidekick!

For the 16 years that I've known you, your commitment to the Division of Oncology in the Department of Medicine has been unwavering. The faculty, staff, post docs and students all benefit from your dedication to support their commitment to cure cancer! The Division, Department and the School of Medicine are fortunate to have a truly caring and professional individual like you!

Hi Phyllis, Thank you for being such a wonderful role model. I learned a lot from you and appreciated your time and guidance when I started my Stanford career 15 years ago as Dean Felsher's Lab Manger. I love your quote and advice above too. Thank you and congratulations on this milestone. Best wishes, Nicole
