Raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Jeffery Wu, M.D., graduated cum laude majoring in Chemistry and Biology from Duke University, where his fascination with the sciences (and Duke basketball) flourished. But it was not until he had hands-on experience participating in the healing process while volunteering at a free clinic and addiction recovery center that he realized his love of the sciences could transcend the classroom and foster relationships that bring true joy and recovery. He took this passion to the West Coast, where he received his M.D. from UCLA and had the privilege of being inducted into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. He remained in Los Angeles to complete an internship at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and an additional four years of dedicated radiation oncology training at UCLA.
During his residency, he gained expertise in emerging technologies such as Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) and Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) while laying a foundation in general radiation oncology. He has been invited to present his research at various national and international conferences, and he has published numerous peerreviewed articles as well as a recent book chapter on radiation therapy for elderly patients. He was honored to serve as Chief Resident during his final year. Dr. Wu is thrilled be a part of the Coastal Radiation Oncology team at Mission Hope Cancer Center, where he aims to use his knowledge and training to deliver the best possible compassionate and evidence-based care to patients.
