  • About

    Marcus E. Randall, MD, FACR, FASTRO, is chair and professor of radiation medicine at the University of Kentucky where he holds the Markey Foundation Chair. A national leader in gynecologic radiation oncology, he served as professor and chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Indiana University School of Medicine, where he held the William A. Mitchell Professorship, prior to coming to UK in 2006.

    Before completing his residency in radiation oncology at the University of Virginia, Dr. Randall earned his MD and undergraduate degree in Chemistry at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. In 2017, he received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the UNC School of Medicine. He is board certified by the American Board of Radiology and a Fellow of the American College of Radiology and American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology.

    Within the Gynecologic Oncology Group, Dr. Randall has led national trials in endometrial and ovarian cancers, chaired the NRG Oncology research organization, and co-chaired the Uterine Corpus Committee. His clinical interests include brachytherapy and gynecologic malignancies.

    Outside of work, Dr. Randall enjoys reading, travel, and spending time with his family, which includes three beautiful grandchildren.

    Personal Statement: "Every day at UK is different, and I enjoy all aspects of it…patient care, education, clinical research. I enjoy getting the team to work together toward common goals that deliver great care to our patients, train the next generation of the radiation oncology workforce, and find new and better ways to care for patients, not just here at UK, but around the world. When everyone is working together (which we do very well here), it is really beautiful to watch."
