Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, he received his medical training at Karolinska Institute, where he was board certified in General Surgery in 2005. Dr Hartman’s doctoral studies in epidemiology led to his specialization in breast cancer etiology and prognostication, as well as inheritance of cancer prognosis.
