Randall J. Kimple, MD, PhD


Randall J. Kimple, MD, PhD, is a radiation oncologist at UW Health and an associate professor in the Department of Human Oncology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. He uses radiation therapy to treat cancers as well as benign conditions and has a special interest in treating cancers of the head and neck, including mouth, throat, thyroid, tonsil and skin cancer.

Dr. Kimple is interested in getting to know who his patients truly are, aside from their medical conditions. He wants to know what matters most to them and then strives to get them back to those things.

Using plain language, Dr. Kimple educates his patients about their conditions and treatment options. He encourages them to participate in making decisions about their care. He collaborates with a team of surgeons, medical oncologists, speech and swallow therapists and other providers to help deliver the best care.

Dr. Kimple is actively involved in research that focuses on improving care for patients receiving radiation therapy. His aim is to make radiation more effective while also finding ways to treat toxicities and side effects of current cancer treatments.

Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his family and golfing.

I absolutely love what I do. It's a privilege to be able to take care of patients with cancer and to help them through their cancer journey.
