"Research, Education, Expert Cancer Care: The Department of Human Oncology is a leader in changing the face of Cancer."
—Paul Harari, MD, Chairman

Welcome to the Department of Human Oncology (DHO) at the University of Wisconsin

We provide comprehensive radiation oncology services with dedication to improve the outcome for cancer patients using state-of-the-art treatment techniques combined with highly compassionate care. Our clinical focus is on each individual cancer patient and their families; however, our mission extends more broadly to include cutting-edge research and advanced training for the next generation of MD and PhD students to ensure cancer therapy improvements for the future.
