    Dr. Jennelle is an Associate Professor and Director of Quality Improvement and Safety at the Department of Radiation Oncology at Keck Medical Center of USC and LAC + USC Medical Center. He graduated summa cum laude from the University of Cincinnati and earned his MD from the UC College of Medicine, where he completed his residency in radiation oncology and was chief resident in his final year.

    Dr. Jennelle was previously Associate Professor and Vice-Chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Mississippi, and served as the Chair of the University of Mississippi’s Quality Improvement Committee for the Cancer Center.

    While at the University of Mississippi, Dr. Jennelle was instrumental in establishing the first ACGME accredited Radiation Oncology Residency Program in the state. Previously, he has served as the Residency Program Director at the University of Arizona, and is very much looking forward to helping the further development of USC’s Residency Program and its focus on training future leaders in the field. Dr. Jennelle’s clinical focus will be directed towards programs in head and neck cancer, gamma knife radiosurgery, thoracic oncology, brachytherapy, and supporting gynecologic radiation oncology. He has a lifelong dedication to addressing the challenges of the medically underserved and is very excited about the partnership between Los Angeles County Hospital and USC KSOM.
