Applying to the Medical Residency Program


Requirements for Admission

The department of radiation oncology typically advertises for candidates approximately twice a year. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in medical physics, physics, engineering, or related fields, and must be willing to commit 2 - 3 years to the residency program. Candidates must demonstrate they have completed the minimum undergraduate and graduate didactic prerequisites as defined by the ABR and CAMPEP (see the recommended course list on page 5 of AAPM Report #197S and CAMPEP's letter to program directors). Resident’s performance and progress will be documented monthly by the program director and following each rotation by the faculty mentor. Following a review of these documents, the program director and residency committee reserve the right to dismiss residents who fail to demonstrate competency, responsibility, industriousness, and ethical behavior.
