Residency Training - Radiation Oncology

The Radiation Oncology Residency Program consists of two separate programs with a strong, mutually beneficial relationship. NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center houses a training program consisting of six residents. NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, along with New York Hospital Queens, houses another program with six residents. Both programs operate under one chairman with a unified vision and a number of common experiences. Each program offers the chance to train with world-renowned faculty who are also dedicated to serving as clinical and research mentors.

The training programs are designed to foster clinical and academic excellence, providing a sophisticated understanding of our field and its central role in cancer patient care. The Department of Radiation Oncology, with its commitment to multidisciplinary care and its shared facilities, provides an environment in which residents are exposed to the interdisciplinary management of cancer. We believe that residents who complete our program are well-rounded radiation oncologists, competent not only in their own field, but also knowledgeable about all aspects of oncology.

The objectives of our residency program are to ensure that the resident is clinically proficient in radiation oncology and committed to patient care. In addition, the resident will become acquainted with clinical investigation, biostatistics, epidemiology, computer data management and analysis, ethical considerations in investigation, biomedical writing, and the development of new technologies.

Understanding the complexities involved in Radiation Oncology demands training that is more comprehensive and rigorous than it has been in the past. Therefore, the program allows for greater exposure to advanced technologies and special procedures, enhancing the resident's capacity to use leading edge technologies that are considered to be future practice areas. These include high dose rate and low dose rate brachytherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery (linear-accelerator and gamma knife based), stereotactic body radiotherapy, intensity modulated radiotherapy, image-guided radiotherapy, and total body irradiation. Each residency program affords the opportunity to interact with specialists in allied disciplines who are world class clinical practitioners and renowned academic researchers. Additionally, both programs are located in New York City, one of the most vibrant and culturally diverse places in the world.

Please contact the Residency Coordinator for each program with any additional questions.
