The mission of Jefferson's Department of Radiation Oncology is to improve cancer patient outcomes through outstanding patient-centered care, research, and education.
Jefferson's radiation oncology cancer care takes place through our department in Center City Philadelphia at the Bodine Center for Cancer Treatment and the Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience. We are also located at the Department of Radiation Oncology and Radiosurgery at Aria Health.
The department evaluates over 2,000 newly-diagnosed cancer patients each year and offers unique, cutting-edge clinical research trial opportunities to all patients. The physicians, physicists, and scientists are nationally and internationally renown for their expertise in cancer care and research and are considered key-opinion leaders in their respective subspecialities.
At Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, one of our three founding mission goals is to educate future physicians, nurses, scientists, and allied health professionals who will take a leadership role in the development of health care reform. Our mission is achieved through shared values:
- Excellence and innovation
- Integrity and respect
- Teamwork and communication
