The Department of Radiation Oncology provides high-quality patient care using cutting-edge technology. The department actively participates in national working group clinical trials and leads numerous departmental investigator initiated clinical trials (including trials led by physics faculty). The department provides a rich learning environment, as it has a Radiation Oncology Residency Program, hosts medical students, and is a clinical training site for radiation therapy and dosimetry programs. Department faculty are highly active in research, leading a wide variety of research programs.
The Medical Physics Residency Program emphasizes the integration of the physics resident within the department. Physics residents will work closely with all staffing groups. In addition to being trained by physicists, residents are also trained directly by therapists and dosimetrists at various times in the program. Physics residents interact with physicians and radiation oncology residents, especially during the 3DCRT and Advanced Treatment Planning rotation. The education didactic sessions are also fully integrated with the Radiation Oncology Residency Program.
