Patient Care Location



Dr. Julie Kang is a board-certified radiation oncologist and Assistant Professor of Therapeutic Radiology. She joins Smilow Cancer Hospital Care Center at Trumbull from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Dr. Kang specializes in the treatment of head and neck, prostate, bladder, and skin cancers, among others. She has authored numerous articles focused on optimizing outcomes and decreasing toxicity for people with these diseases, and has extensive experience conducting clinical trials utilizing immunotherapy and personalized medicine in these malignancies. She has expertise in state-of-the-art techniques including intensity-modulated radiation therapy, image-guided radiation therapy, stereotactic body radiation therapy, and adaptive radiation therapy.

“Long before I became a cancer physician, I was the daughter of a cancer patient,” she says. “I learned that the greatest comforts come in the forms of compassion, knowledge, and working together towards a common goal. I became inspired to be a radiation oncologist who empowers patients by providing education, working with them and their care teams to make personalized treatment plans, and participating in research that helps us not only deliver the highest standards of care--but also raise them.”
