Message from the Department Head

Baldassarre Stea, MD, PhD
Department Head and Professor

Welcome to the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Arizona College of Medicine!  In our department, our mission and tradition is to uphold the three pillars of the UA College of Medicine: the highest-quality patient care, thorough training of our residents, and advanced research initiatives. At our clinic, our patients have the advantage of the team-approach. Our physicians have a tremendous amount of expertise in the field of Radiation Oncology and we work with our colleagues from other specialties in our organization to ensure every patient gets the right care at the right time. We offer the latest clinical trials that give our patients access to treatments that are not yet available to the public.

All of our physicians specialize in a particular disease site of Radiation Oncology, such as breast cancer or prostate cancer. This allows them to focus their patient care, research, and teachings in the area of which they are most knowledgeable. We have five physicians with over 50 years of combined experience in this field.  In addition, we currently have six medical residents rotating through the clinical core curriculum of Radiation Oncology while participating in various research efforts.
