The American College of Radiation Oncology recognized Michael Kuettel, MD, PhD, MBA, as one of the nation’s leading radiation oncologists.
Kuettel, the Barbara C. and George H. Hyde chair in radiation medicine at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, received the 2014 ACRO gold medal in recognition of his service to the organization and the field of radiation oncology.
“This award acknowledges Dr. Kuettel’s work in highlighting the importance of multidisciplinary cancer care and how it fits into the mission-driven care we’re committed to at Roswell Park Cancer Institute,” Donald L. Trump, MD, FACP, president and CEO of Roswell Park Cancer Institute, said in a press release. “Dr. Kuettel directs the most technologically advanced radiation facility in Upstate New York and has led the institute’s radiation medicine program during a time in which rapid advances in technology have underscored the need for outstanding staff development and constant commitment to quality control.”
Kuettel, past president and board chairman for ACRO, joined Roswell Park as chair of radiation medicine and professor of oncology in 1999. He also serves as chair of the University at Buffalo’s department of radiation medicine and serves on the National Comprehensive Cancer Network panel that develops prostate cancer practice guidelines.
