    Collapse overview
    Dr. Kamil M. Yenice is an Associate Professor at the University of Chicago in the Department of Radiation & Cellular Oncology. He received his Ph.D. in Experimental Physics from the University of Toledo in 1993. After a two-year appointment as a lecturer at Penn-State University-Erie he studied Medical Physics at Wayne State University. He started his Medical Physics career in New York Hospital, Cornell Medical Center, in New York City, followed by a faculty position at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center before joining as faculty in Radiation Oncology at the University of Chicago in 2005.

    He is currently Chief of Clinical Physics and Director of the Medical Physics Residency Program. His research focuses on the use of image guided stereotactic treatment delivery methods and improving quality assurance aspects of patient treatments. He has published on the implementation of stereotactic delivery methods in SRS and SBRT and also as the co-chair for the AAPM TG-101 Report on SBRT.

    Currently, he serves as Physics co-chair of the ASTRO APEx committee and chair of AAPM WGIMRT. He is actively engaged in professional activities of both ASTRO and AAPM and advocates for patient safety and practice accreditation for improved quality of care. He is board certified by the ABMP.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
