The Department of Radiation Oncology is part of a rapidly expanding academic medical center at the University of Utah. Staffed with twelve board-certified radiation oncologists as well as a full complement of physics, dosimetry, radiation therapist, and nursing support personnel, the department provides comprehensive radiation therapy services. In addition, our multidisciplinary partnership with surgical, medical, and pediatric oncology, pathology, and radiology allows us to provide state-of-the-art conventional and experimental therapy to our patients.
The department operates three radiation therapy clinics: one at Huntsman Cancer Institute (the only National Cancer Institute-Designated Cancer Center in the Mountain West) and satellite clinics at the Sugar House Health Center and the Farmington Health Center. Cancer patients are referred from the University of Utah Hospital and South Jordan Health Center, the Salt Lake Veterans Administration Medical Center, Primary Children's Hospital, and other facilities throughout a multi-state region, including Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and Nevada.
