Paul Menzel, M.D.
Dr. Menzel is originally from Minnesota, and elected to stay close to home for college. After studying bark beetle genetics in Norway for a year via a Fulbright grant, he attended Cornell University Medical College in New York City. It was during this time that he became interested in radiation oncology. He was able to explore this interest via international experiences at the Karolinksa Institute and the University of Ibadan. After medical school, he moved to San Francisco for residency, and he has lived here ever since. He could not be happier to be at UCSF!
Dr. Menzel's research focuses on evaluating methods of radiation therapy that maximize tumor control and minimize side effects, with the goal of providing his patients with the best possible quality of life. Before arriving at UCSF, he helped to spearhead a clinical trial at Stanford evaluating a cutting-edge prostate cancer treatment that can be delivered in two days instead of the traditional 7-8 weeks. At UCSF, he looks forward to getting involved with clinical trials and being able to offer his patients the most effective and advanced treatments available.
