Jessica Scholey, M.S.
Jessica is a Clinical Instructor in the UCSF Department of Radiation Oncology. She received her bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of California at Berkeley, and subsequently spent a year doing biophysics and biochemistry research at the University of California at Davis. After obtaining her master’s degree in Medical Physics from the University of Pennsylvania, she served as Chief Medical Physics Resident in Penn’s Radiation Oncology Department. During this time, her research focused on image-guided radiotherapy, proton pencil beam scanning (commissioning and treatment planning), and functional imaging for sparing normal tissues. Her clinical interests range from external beam photon and proton radiotherapy to high-dose rate brachytherapy. An additional focus includes contributing to a collaborative, team-based environment which encourages high-quality assurance and care in a multidisciplinary academic institution.
