Our Mission Statement

The University of Kansas Medical Center Radiation Oncology Department is committed to being at the forefront of finding better treatments and cures for cancer through its superior clinical care and clinical trials coupled with cutting-edge research in cancer biology, medical physics, and health services.

We recognize that both cost and quality measure the value of the healthcare which patients and society seek.
