The University of Kentucky Department of Radiation Medicine employs a talented faculty of radiation oncologist and medical physicists who are nationally recognized as excellent clinicians and thought leaders in their areas of interest. Care is rendered with a subspecialty focus, which further enhances the level of expertise and knowledge offered to each patient under our care. Each faculty membe...r appreciates the opportunity to take care of some of the most complicated oncology patients anywhere, and they enjoy having the facilities, technology, resources, and the teamwork required to provide that care. Our patients benefit from Varian TruBeam, Tomotherapy, and Gamma Knife technologies, making our department one of the most technically sophisticated departments in the region with full capabilities for intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), total body and total skin RT, and all other external beam delivery techniques. Our brachytherapy program is one of the busiest in the country, performing implants for gynecologic, breast, prostate and other primary tumor sites.
Our department is home to two fully accredited residency programs. The radiation oncology residency attracts outstanding candidates. As a group, they typically perform in the top 25% of residents nationally. Our medical physics residents are selected from our departmentally-based Masters Program in Medical Physics. Additionally, we now have a fully accredited Medical Physics PhD program. All of our residents and students are engaged in research, with most presenting at national meetings and publishing in peer-reviewed journals.
Our research programs encompass multiple areas of investigation including clinical and translational science. Clinical research includes participation in cooperative group and industry-sponsored studies in addition to innovative investigator-initiated trials. Active NCI-funded laboratories are also engaged in translational science investigations. Many investigations involve our faculty scientists working collaboratively with investigators in the Markey Cancer Center, providing access to outstanding shared services and other support that enhances research opportunities.
