The Radiation Oncology Department focuses on providing compassionate care for patients with cancer and benign conditions. The department uses modern equipment, such as a facility that manufactures beam-shaping treatment devices to fit each patient’s individual needs. From the first screening and throughout their treatment, physicians strive to make each patient's experience positive and supportive. Research in radiation oncology spans from focusing on the cellular level to developing better medical instruments. The department educates students through a variety of educational programs, including a four-year residency as well as internships.
