Professor & Chair
Thank you for your interest in our radiation oncology residency at Jefferson. You can be sure that cooperation and teamwork set the atmosphere of our program, which we modify over the years according to suggestions of its enrollees. As a hospital-based service with a major academic role within the medical college, our department considers resident training its most important academic function.
Radiation oncology residency at Jefferson is a four-year training program (PGY 2-5). Residents must have completed one year of post-graduate training in medicine, surgery, or a transitional program.
Jefferson’s residency in radiation oncology trains residents broadly in cancer management and emphasizes interdisciplinary care. Faculty members provide instruction in all modes of radiation oncology: megavoltage photon- and electron-beam therapy, interstitial and intracavitary radioactive-source implantations, stereotactic radiosurgery and radiotherapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy and the diagnostic and therapeutic uses of radioactive isotopes.
Jefferson's Department of Radiation Oncology will be filling two residency positions for the 2014/15 academic year. However, we are no longer accepting applications for the 2014 Residency Program. Interviews to be held on December 7, 2012 and January 18, 2013.
