Radiation Oncology Residency


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.

Jefferson's radiation oncology off-campus locations: 

  • Pediatric Radiation Oncology Rotation at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. 
  • Gynecologic and Thyroid Malignancies Rotation at Washington University St. Louis, Missouri
  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery/Stereotactic Ablative Radiosurgery (SRS/SABR) with Cyberknife for various cancer cases at Christiana Care in Newark, Delaware.
