Beatriz E. Amendola, MD FACR FASTRO FACRO, is a Urugayan-American radiation oncologist. She currently is the head of the Innovative Cancer Institute in Miami.


Amendola was born and raised in Montevideo and applied for medical school in secret as her family wished her to continue a career in music.[1] She earned an M.D. from the University of the Republic (Uruguay). She completed her residency at the Medical College of Virginia. She became board certified by the American Board of Radiology in 1980.[2]

Upon immigrating to North America, Amendola founded the Innovative Cancer Institute, which she later expanded into a new facility to focus on radiosurgery and radiotherapy.[3]

Amendola received a gold medal from the Circulo de Radioterapeutas Ibero Latino Americano (CRILA) and in 2015, became an honorary member of the Spanish Society of Radiation Oncology (SEOR) due to her contributions to radiation oncology in Spain.[4][non-primary source needed]
