The objective of our program: To offer a comprehensive education in clinical radiation oncology, treatment planning, radiation physics, and radiobiology, preparing graduates for a career in academic medicine and the ability to provide outstanding patient care as practicing radiation oncologists. This training program exposes residents to a large volume and variety of cancer patients including those with pediatric, gastrointestinal, gynecologic, genitourinary tract, reticuloendothelial system, upper respiratory tract (including the head, neck, and lung), breast (both primary and metastatic), central nervous system, skin, bone, and soft tissue tumors. It provides the resident with experiences in short and long-term follow up of irradiated patients mainly on an outpatient basis. This program emphasizes a multi-modality approach to the management of cancer patients. This approach involves a close personal working relationship between the attending physician and resident as well as intensive interaction with other oncologic specialties. There will be numerous opportunities for radiation oncology residents to interact with specialists in medical oncology, neuron-oncology, surgery and surgical specialties as well as physicians in diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine, pathology, clinical laboratory medicine, and physicians active in tumor registries.
