PHILADELPHIA, PA (August 19, 2014)—Mark A. Hallman, MD, PhD, has joined Fox Chase Cancer Center’s Department of Radiation Oncology. He completed his residency in radiation oncology this June at Fox Chase, having served as chief resident.
Dr. Hallman’s primary area of focus is the treatment of patients with thoracic, hematologic, and genitourinary malignancies. He has extensive training in several specialized radiation techniques, including intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), and prostate brachytherapy.
