Associate Professor

Department: Radiation Oncology



Dr. Kevin Albuquerque  acquired his medical degree through Bombay University, India. This was followed by residency and training  in surgical oncology in Bombay and Nottingham U.K where he obtained his F.R.C.S. In the US,  he completed his residency in Radiation Oncology at S.U.N.Y University Hospital in Brooklyn, NY and was board-certified in 2002. 

Subsequently from 2002-2012, he was  on  faculty with Loyola University Medical Center, Chicago  where he treated women with gynecological and breast cancers and was Clinical Director and Section chief in Radiation Oncology for these sites . Besides being awarded a Loyola Cancer Center grant for research comparing breast  brachytherapy with external radiotherapy; he was in  collaboration on several funded NIH grants looking at translational effects of breast radiation on immune markers , psychoneuroimmunology in breast cancer patients  and decision making for women with DCIS undergoing breast conservation therapy. He also obtained a Masters in Clinical Research Methods at Loyola


Dr. Albuquerque is heading our Radiation Gynecologic  Oncology service and will continue his research into Brachytherapy and gynecological and breast  tumors   


His main area of interests are Epidemiology, Quality of Life issues and Outcome studies and clinical trials incorporating Radiation for Gyneclogical cancers  .
