Message from the Chair

Dr. Allen M. Chen
Dr. Allen M. Chen, Chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology

I would like to personally welcome you to the website for the Department of Radiation Oncology at UC Irvine.

Our faculty and staff are experts in delivering conscientious and compassionate care to our patients while offering support to our patients’ families. 

I’m certain you will find our “patient centric” approach is enhanced by our mission to advance cancer treatment through research, education and its translation to patient care.

We have a strong commitment to educating our radiation oncology and medical physics residents to be future leaders and innovators in radiation oncology and medical physics. I’m proud to say our record is outstanding in this regard.

Our former residents have been successful in completion of their board certifications and placed in professional positions upon completion of their training.

Our radiobiology research scientists are exceptional, with novel research in areas that include the use of stem cells to repair radiation-induced injury of normal tissue.

Our faculty is committed to improving patient care through research, learning and teaching; our members are regularly invited to present at international, national and local events.

Please take this opportunity to browse our website to learn more about the UC Irvine Department of Radiation Oncology program.
