Jennifer Ho, MD, is an Assistant Professor of Clinical in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Keck School of Medicine of USC . She will serve as the primary radiation oncologist at Arcadia Medical Office Building when it opens in the Fall of 2019. She will be working closely with community providers to increase access, and provide Keck Medicine quality care in the community that mirrors standards set at Keck Medical Center of USC. Until that time Dr. Ho will treat patients at Norris Cancer Hospital and Keck Hospital.

Dr. Ho graduated with honors from Duke University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She received her medical degree from Duke University School of Medicine with a Dean’s Merit Full Tuition Scholarship. During medical school, she spent one year performing clinical and translational research at the National Cancer Institute, as a fellow in the NIH Clinical Research Training Program. She completed her internship in Internal Medicine at the University of North Carolina Hospital. She subsequently completed her radiation oncology residency training at MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Dr. Ho has published numerous papers and given presentations on research topics including irradiation of lung and head and neck cancers, stereotactic radiosurgery, stereotactic spine radiation, and MRI as a prognostic indicator. She has expertise in advanced radiation techniques, including stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), and intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), and is interested in studying the role of these techniques to effectively treat cancer while minimizing side effects. She is dedicated to providing excellent, patient-centered care, and is passionate about being an advocate for her patients and their families.
