Welcome to the Department of Radiation Oncology Residency Program at UMMC. We appreciate your interest in our program. The department offers a fully accredited four-year residency program. We have a one-per-year resident cohort. Residents start radiation oncology training after completion of a transitional PGY-1 year or internship in internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery or surgical specialties, obstetrics & gynecology, or family medicine. This PGY-1 year must include at least nine months of direct patient care in medical and/or surgical specialties other than radiation oncology. Applicants who have not completed their PGY-1 year may apply to a preliminary program that enables them to complete their first post-graduate year at UMMC. Our program is designed to provide aspiring medical professionals with comprehensive training in the specialized field of radiation oncology. As a resident, you will have the opportunity to work closely with experienced oncologists, physicists, and radiation therapists, gaining invaluable hands-on experience and knowledge of the latest advancements in radiation therapy techniques. Four distinct priorities serve as the pillars of our GME culture: Community, Integrity, Intellectual Curiosity, and Workplace Enjoyment.
