Shinohara, associate medical director in Radiation Oncology, is among 56 educators at programs recognized by the medical residents for this year’s award.

Presented annually, the Educator of the Year Award recognizes faculty members who are outstanding teachers and mentors of radiation oncology members. Each radiation oncology residency program may nominate one faculty member for the award.

The residents are members of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), the largest radiation oncology organization in the world, with more than 10,000 members who treat patients with radiation therapies.

Shinohara completed his medical degree and Master of Science in Clinical Investigation at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. After completing his internship in Internal Medicine at Abington Memorial Hospital, Abington, Pa., and residency in Radiation Oncology at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, he returned to Vanderbilt in 2010 as a faculty member.

In addition to being an active committee member of several review boards and quality initiatives, Shinohara has published approximately 40 papers and articles on cancer biology and radiation therapy.
