4-Year Educational Plan

Scoping patientIn order to train future practitioners of radiation oncology, we provide a comprehensive educational experience that will expose residents to all aspects of radiation oncology. We have designed a curriculum that is innovative, individualized and integrative. The residency experience entails clinical rotations, didactics (graduate level courses and several weekly conferences and tumor boards) dedicated research time, and pathways that allow residents to specialize and focus on areas of interest within the specialty. Residents finish the program with a deep understanding of cancer including the biology, pathology, natural history, work-up and treatment approaches with radiation therapy, surgery and chemotherapy. Residents become competent in the delivery of radiation therapy including techniques of external beam radiotherapy as well as interstitial and intracavitary radiotherapy. Through a variety of experiences and resources available, residents become well prepared for their board examinations.
