Message from the Chair
Welcome to the website for Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine’s Department of Radiation Oncology. Within this site, you will find out more about our department’s commitment to education, research and patient care.
It is our mission to educate future generations of radiation oncology clinician-scientists. We hope they will use their experiences and training from Feinberg to improve on our shared understanding of cancer and its treatment. We expect much of them, and are committed to serving as compassionate mentors as they begin their careers. Our residents actively engage in research and have direct responsibilities for patient care.
The clinical experience we offer to residents teaches them to work as part of an integrated team of professionals that provides comprehensive care in a state-of-the-art facility. They also learn to provide compassionate, individualized care that responds to each patient’s unique cancer experience.
Our research is geared towards making cancer treatment more effective and cost efficient. Our clinical and scientific studies are national in scope and reflect ongoing collaboration between recognized leaders in the field here at Northwestern and elsewhere. Our research program keeps us in constant touch with an international network of experts, making it possible for us to quickly transform new knowledge into practical strategies for patient care.
This website provides details about our faculty, research activities, and education programs. Please contact me or any of the Radiation Oncology faculty with comments or questions.
