YOU ARE EXPLORING
The first year (PGY 2) of training in this residency program typically consists of ten months of clinical experiences with one-month rotations in physics and medical oncology.
Second year (PGY 3) training is typically comprised of eight to nine months of clinical, with one-month rotations in gynecologic oncology and otolaryngology. In addition, residents in this program can complete one to two months of research.
The third year (PGY 4) of this residency is typically structured with nine to eleven months of clinical, depending upon whether a one two-month research elective is designated, and a one-month elective rotation.
The fourth year (PGY 5) typically consists of clinical rotation with research option (as in year three) and a one-month elective rotation.
Clinical rotations occur on a team basis, allowing time with each attending and his or her specialties. As a part of the clinical rotation, each resident is responsible for initial patient workup, weekly treatment checks, dose prescriptions, port films, and management of the patient’s course of radiotherapy. This is accomplished under the direction of the attending physician.
Residency electives are available in pediatric oncology, research, surgical oncology, pathology, urology or radiology. One or more of these may be required at the discretion of the department chair or residency program director.
