His internship was completed in the University of Chicago Hospital system, followed by a residency at the University of California in San Francisco, serving as the Chief Resident in 1999.
Dr Posner joined the Lake Forest Hospital staff in 2000. His special interests include highly conformal radiotherapy with IMRT, VMAT, and IGRT as well as stereotactic radiotherapy and radiosurgery (SBRT/SRS).

He has additional training and experience in the treatment of other cancers, and constantly works to improve outcomes and reduce side effects. He has lectured both nationally and internationally on the use of advanced radiotherapy techniques in the treatment of prostate, head and neck, breast, and other cancers.
He is happily married with twin children and twin dogs (a pair of pairs!).
