She then received her MD from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. During medical school, she developed a kinship with many of her cancer patients and decided to focus her career on oncology. She received the Cancer Research Training Award from the National Cancer Institute and spent a year studying protein expression in squamous cell cancer. She then completed internship at the Legacy Emanuel Hospital. Dr. Wang-Chesebro completed her residency and became Chief Resident at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). She has coauthored radiation oncology textbook chapters and published articles in leading scientific journals on intensity modulated radiotherapy, high dose rate brachytherapy for cervical cancer, and presented her research at national meetings. Today she focuses on breast cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, gynecologic cancer, brain tumors, and lung cancer. She also specializes in procedures such as high dose rate brachytherapy including intracavitary and interstitial implants, stereotactic body radiosurgery, gamma knife radiosurgery, and deep inspiration breath hold technique.
