Radiation Oncology Residency

Radiation Oncology Residency Program

Welcome and thank you for your interest in University of Miami’s Radiation Oncology residency program.

The primary goal of our program is to cultivate a diverse and comprehensive training environment to enable our residents to become exceptional clinicians. With both public and private institutional affiliations, our residents are exposed to a diverse patient population. Residents become highly trained in modern radiotherapy techniques, including brachytherapy, radiosurgery, image-guided radiotherapy, as well as procedures such as delivery of unsealed sources, total body irradiation, and eye plaques.

In addition to our clinical training, we provide a continuous six-month block for residents to pursue scholarly clinical and/or laboratory research. We encourage all residents to actively participate in research in an effort to better understand and critically analyze the radiation oncology literature. To that end, we provide full financial support for residents to present their work at national meetings.

Beyond our training experience, we foster a warm and welcoming environment both inside and outside of the department. From our annual holiday gala at Jungle Island to barbeques with faculty, we guarantee that you will find a collegial and supportive atmosphere in our program.

We believe the diverse personal and educational backgrounds of our residents and faculty strengthen our training environment. With a twelve-resident complement, we are among the largest training programs in the country, yet we utilize a personalized approach to support each individual resident’s goals and career development.

Applicants whose credentials are academically sound and whose interests, aptitudes, and preparation reflect a well-rounded training experience are invited for a personal interview in our department. Three residency positions are available in the upcoming 2018 Match.

We look forward to seeing you in Miami!
