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.

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.
