Radiation Oncology Residency Program
At Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, one of our three founding mission goals is to educate future physicians, nurses, scientists, and allied health professionals who will take a leadership role in the development of health care reform. Our mission is achieved through shared values:
- Excellence and innovation
- Integrity and respect
- Teamwork and communication
The Department of Radiation Oncology offers two dynamic and comprehensive residency programs. 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 2015/16 academic year. We will be accepting applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) only. Interviews will be held on December 13, 2013 and January 24, 2014.
Application Deadline: We appreciate your partnership in ERAS. The deadline for submission of applications will be 11:59pm on October 15th. Unfortunately, we will not be considering any new applications as part of this year's Residency Program Selection submitted after this deadline. However, we will continue receiving missing letters and documents from the ERAS post office. Thank you and our best to each of you.
