Residency Training

Radiation Oncology residency training at IU School of Medicine includes a categorical radiation oncology program and a medical physics program.


All radiation oncology residents at IU School of Medicine take the In-Training Exam each spring. This exam is sponsored by the American College of Radiology and administered within the Department of Radiation Oncology. It is intended to test knowledge and help the resident and Program Director assess the resident’s progress within the training program. In addition, residents participate in the annual RAPHEX exam for Physics.
