The department provides Radiation Oncology services at several practice settings and is in need of a Medical Director to provide patient care in this soon to open community-based Radiation Oncology Center at the University of Maryland, Capital Region Medical Center in the Largo/ Upper Marlboro area. The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in having a career in academic radiation oncology in a community setting with an active clinical practice and lead the clinical trial activity at the center. The Department of Radiation Oncology's clinical program has 16 physicians inclusive of physician scientist faculty. The main patient care facility at the University of Maryland Medical Center in downtown Baltimore, within the University of Maryland Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center, is close to the main attractions of the Inner Harbor waterfront and professional sports stadiums. We have established practices in 6 locations in Maryland - the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) and Maryland Proton Treatment Center (MPTC) in downtown Baltimore, the Central Maryland Radiation Oncology Center (CMROC) in Columbia, the Tate Cancer Center at the University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center in Glen Burnie (UM-BWMC), the Kaufman Cancer Center at the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air (UM-UCMC) and the Requard Radiation Oncology Center at the University of Maryland Shore Regional Medical Center in Easton (UM-SRMC).

Within this program is the Division of Translational Radiation Science, which was established to accelerate the discovery and clinical implementation of new therapeutic strategies to improve tumor response in clinical radiotherapy, minimize post-radiation therapy complications, and mitigate/treat the life-threatening health effects of a radioactive or nuclear agent. Research within PRO is foc-used on bridging the gap between novel hypothesis-driven science and contract research services to advance new drugs, medical devices, and therapeutic techniques from preclinical efficacy studies toward clinical trial for radiation oncology and biodefense applications. To this end, PRO has assembled a team of 10 faculty and >30 administrative, technical, and regulatory personnel uniquely equipped to operate at the intersection between basic and translational radiation science.
