Medical Residency Program

radiation oncology residents

The Radiation Oncology Residency Program consists of four years of specialty training after you have completed a preliminary or transitional year. Our residency emphasizes cancer care in a multidisciplinary setting with the opportunity to be exposed to a diverse patient population, advanced technology and different practice styles.  The program is based at the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota. Residents also rotate through satellite sites including Veterans Affairs Medical Center, University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital, M Health Maple Grove and Fairview Lakes Medical Center.

Our curriculum incorporates one-to-one teaching, didactic lectures, treatment planning conference, journal clubs, chart rounds and tumor board conferences.  Residents will also enroll in dedicated physics and radiobiology courses.  Our goal is to provide an exceptional education that will prepare you for a successful career in radiation oncology.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our residency interviews will be conducted all virtually this year. We are committed to making sure that we offer the same experience virtually that we offer in person and cannot wait to be able to have in-person interviews again.
 
For the 2022 Match we are looking to match 1 slot.
 
Requests for virtual interviews will be sent out around middle of November.

Virtually Tour the Department

While it’s not possible to have an in-person tour of our department this year, we hope you enjoy this virtual tour video made by our residents.
