About Me

Dr. Ferris specializes in the treatment of head and neck cancer, thoracic cancer, and skin cancer. He strives to work closely with the entire treatment team, including surgeons and medical oncology colleagues, to offer cutting-edge, tailored treatment to each patient. He prizes attention to detail throughout each patient's course of radiation therapy.

Dr. Ferris serves as the medical director of the Maryland Proton Treatment Center, which is affiliated with the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center. In addition, he is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM).

Dr. Ferris' ongoing research at the University of Maryland is focused on optimizing advanced radiation techniques, including proton therapy, to maximize control of malignancies while sparing side effects and improving long-term patient reported outcomes. His research has resulted in numerous peer-reviewed publications and has yielded oral presentations at national and international conferences. He also has keen interest in clinical trial development and enrollment.

Dr. Ferris grew up in Towson, Maryland. He completed his undergraduate studies in 2010 at Loyola University Maryland, where he majored in biology with minors in business and English and graduated summa cum laude. He was elected a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Society. In 2014, he graduated cum laude from University of Maryland School of Medicine, where he was elected a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.

In 2015, Dr. Ferris completed a medical internship at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He continued on at Emory to complete residency training in radiation oncology in 2019. He served as chief resident during his final year of training. During his residency, in addition to the busy clinical training, he conducted clinical research in several areas including

  • Cardiac-sparing radiation planning techniques (such as cardiac-optimized volumetric modulated arc therapy)
  • Intensity modulated proton therapy
  • Implications of radiation dose to the heart
  • Effects of radiation dose to the central nervous system on patient symptoms in head and neck cancer

In his spare time, Dr. Ferris enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters. He also enjoys the outdoors. Among his favorite outdoor activities are surfing, golfing and hunting.
