Dr Prado Resized

Karl L. Prado, PhD, FACR, FAAPM
1950–2018

Dr. Karl L. Prado served as a faculty member and invaluable medical physics educator to trainees and staff from 2009 to 2017 at the University of Maryland Department of Radiation Oncology. He dedicated himself to clinical program development and the advancement of new technologies and safety protocols in radiation oncology, so that every treatment could be tailored to the specific needs of each patient.

In 2018, the first-ever department Golden Apple Educator of the Year Award was established, and Dr. Prado unanimously received the distinguished award from the department’s medical and physics residents for his earnest contributions to their education. In 2019, the Physics and Radiobiology Review Course, which helps prepare medical residents for their biology and physics qualifying exams, was renamed to honor the memory and unmatched teaching abilities of Dr. Karl L. Prado. 

This endowment was named for Dr. Prado to honor his remarkable influence. The Department of Radiation Oncology seeks to fundraise $1 million and will invest $1 million in matching funds. This fund advances education and training in radiation oncology for talented and compassionate healers and innovators who will aggressively pursue dramatic advances in radiation therapy. 

The Dr. Prado endowment helps support our educational mission by funding medical and physics residents for a number of intiatives including:

  • Supporting social, physical and mental wellness activities.

  • Contributing to peer-reviewed publication fees, attendance at research conferences, and elective rotations.

  • Supporting annual University of Maryland Department of Radiation Oncology continuing educational events, including the Mock Orals Course for graduated medical residents, the "Best of Symposium" led by radiation oncology faculty, and the Physics and Radiobiology Review Course.

We save lives through our work. Your support of the Dr. Karl L. Prado Endowment for Radiation Oncology captures your dedication to all facets of training and continuing education to help others.
