Radiation Oncology Residency Program
Welcome to University of Miami Radiation Oncology! The Department of Radiation Oncology currently has eight funded residency positions. Those who have completed their PGY-1 year in an approved U.S. program are eligible for our training program.
The overall goal of our training program is to provide our residents with optimal training and experiences necessary for them to master their skills and become exceptional Radiation Oncologists. Our residents are exposed to a diverse patient population with the full spectrum of disease pathology during their training. Low resident-to-faculty ratio permits close personal supervision in all phases of training. Teaching and clinical programs are resident-oriented. Exposure to a variety of tumor types and sites throughout training is believed to most closely simulate clinical practice. Our strong brachytherapy program, allows residents to participate and perform brachytherapy procedures in various disease sites including GYN, prostate, breast, sarcoma, endobronchial, head and neck, and liver. Our growing SBRT/SRS program helps our residents to become proficient with stereotactic treatment techniques. We encourage all residents to actively participate in research and provide financial support for residents to presents their work at a national meeting. We also allocate a continuous six-month block for residents during their PGY4 year for dedicated research time to deepen their ability to appreciate, understand and critically analyze the radiation oncology literature. We prioritize resident education and provide our residents with weekly radiobiology and physics courses as well as ensure each resident one full academic day per week.
In addition to receiving excellent education, we also guarantee a good time. Miami offers a wide variety of outdoor activities, dining options, shopping, and nightlife.
