Faculty

Our medical faculty comes to our department with years of education and training, whether they are radiation oncologists, medical physicists, or researchers. Every one of them is dedicated to improving radiation therapy treatments and technologies in order to provide the most effective options to treat each patient’s disease.

Radiation oncologists

Radiation oncologists prescribe and develop treatment plans that are specific to each patient, oversee the precise delivery of the treatment, and are committed to clinical care and development of new patient clinical trials.

Medical physicists

Medical physicists work with the doctor to develop treatment plans and work with dosimetrists to make sure the treatment is safe and tailored ot the patients' needs. They also develop and monitor quality control plans for radiation equipment and procedures, ensuring patient safety and comfort.

Researchers

Researchers develop studies to examine how radiation and medical physics can be made even more effective and better targeted to treat the cancer while leaving healthy tissue and organs unaffected. As their research moves to clinical trials that offer new hope, our patients can participate, supported by clinical trial nurses.
