We would like to welcome you to Thomas Jefferson's Radiation Oncology Program. Thank you for exploring our website.
The Radiation Oncology Residency Program trains physicians in a multi-disciplinary, research-based, patient-oriented approach to the practice of radiation oncology. Jefferson's philosophy emphasizes basic science and translational research as a platform for the cutting edge practice of oncology. Faculty members provide instruction in all aspects of radiation oncology: megavoltage photon- and electron-beam therapy, interstitial and intracavitary radioactive-source implantations, stereotactic radiosurgery and radiotherapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy, hyperthermia, and the diagnostic and therapeutic uses of radioactive isotopes.
We offer a fully ACGME-accredited four year residency program in radiation oncology that 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.
