    Personal Statement: “Our department has innovative technology to deliver a highly conformal radiation dose to treat our patients, while sparing the normal organs. This allows for the maximum chance of cure while limiting side effects. Our institution fosters an atmosphere that motivates intellectual advancement of our field. Patient care and research development are of high importance, which in turn provides many opportunities to stimulate our academic minds and address unsolved questions in patient care—all in a friendly environment. UK also encourages close multidisciplinary collaboration throughout our healthcare network.”
