Physician Profile

Sung Kim, MD
Radiation Oncologist

I have been at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey since 2006, after completing medical school and a radiation oncology residency at Yale. Prior to that I attended the U.S. Naval Academy and served as a submarine officer aboard the USS Asheville (SSN 758).

I have a specialized focus on genitourinary cancers (prostate, bladder, seminoma) and head and neck cancers. With the multidisciplinary team of urologists and medical oncologists at the Prostate Cancer Program, I help educate patients on their treatment options so that they can make informed decisions. I also have a special interest in head and neck cancers, which I treat at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and at University Hospital in Newark.

Here at the Cancer Institute we have physicians who have both a clinical and research interest in specific cancers, and the resources that are available only at a National Cancer Institute-designated Cancer Center. I have a research interest in both genitourinary and head and neck cancer, and have published a number of papers regarding optimization of treatment for these patients. Our radiation delivery machines in radiation oncology are top notch, but more importantly, we have a great team of nurses, physicists, dosimetrists, therapists and doctors- a multitude of people that make our treatments technically precise and offer our patients a human touch.  

As a member of the educational committee at RSNA (Radiological society of North America), I help organize and monitor scientific sessions at the national convention and teach head and neck radiation courses. I also belong to the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and American Radium Society (ARS), and serve as program director for the Radiation Oncology Residency Program, helping to educate the next generation of radiation oncologists.
