The University of Oklahoma Radiation Oncology residency program is a four-year ACGME accredited program. Accepted residents will begin training at the PGY-2 level, following the completion of an internship at an ACGME accredited program of their choice. This is in accordance with the American Board of Radiology requirements for board eligibility.
Our department is located in the Stephenson Cancer Center at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center campus. We also provide services to the VA Medical Center located within walking distance of the cancer center.
The residency program consists of six residents and six full-time Radiation Oncology faculty physicians. Each faculty physician specializes and performs research in a specific disease site(s). Residents will rotate equally amongst each faculty throughout training, allowing them to receive expert oversight and education while being exposed to a wide variety of malignancies and treatments. Residents will receive exposure and practice radiation oncology utilizing numerous treatment modalities including LINAC based external beam radiation therapy techniques (2D, 3D, IMRT, VMAT), total body irradiation, Gamma Knife SRS, Brain and body stereotactic treatments (SBRT/SRS), various brachytherapy procedures (low and high dose rate brachytherapy, cervical and endometrial brachytherapy, eye plaque, prostate seeds), and the use of unsealed sources. In 2018, we plan to initiate proton therapy treatment utilizing the Mevion platform system. This technology will make our department the second center and only academic institution in the state to offer such technology and treatment to patients.
The Stephenson Cancer Center is one of the most beautiful cancer centers in our nation. Our dedicated faculty and commitment to the advancement of science continue to further our department rapidly and progressively each year. Our residents receive a highly regarded and thorough education combined with a very broad technological exposure during their training.
We are very excited by what our training program has to offer you, and welcome and look forward to your continued interest.
