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.
