Your Doctor

Radiation Oncologist

This is a cancer specialist who provides your radiation therapy for cancer. Also called a radiation cancer doctor, he or she has additional specialty training in the use of radiation therapy (i.e. high-energy X-rays) for the treatment of cancers.

In addition to your primary radiation oncologist, the attending physician, there may also be other doctors-in-training called fellows or residents who will also be part of your care team as well as medical students. Stanford is dedicated to teaching and training the next generation of doctors.
