Residency Training:

Internship in Internal Medicine at Indiana University School of Medicine
Residency in Radiation Oncology at Indiana University School of Medicine

Interest and Accomplishments:

In 2014, Dr. Henderson became the medical director of the Bay Area Hospital Radiation Oncology Center in Coos Bay, Oregon. He had previously been on the faculty of the Indiana University School of Medicine as an Assistant Professor of Clinical Radiation Oncology. At various times, he headed site-specific services focusing on central nervous system (CNS) tumors, head and neck cancer, and breast cancer. 

From 2010 – 2014, Dr. Henderson also practiced general radiation oncology as the medical director of the Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital Department of Radiation Therapy. His research focuses were on the treatment of CNS tumors and on the better understanding and avoidance of toxicity from stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for early stage non-small cell lung cancer.
