Residency in Radiation Oncology
Current ERAS Applications
The Department of Radiation Oncology earned ACGME accreditation status for its Radiation Oncology Residency Training Program in 2005.
We currently have 10 residents through the 2013–14 academic year. Applications will be accepted through ERAS during the period of September 15, 2013, through October 15, 2013, for two PGY-2 positions scheduled to match in March 2014 for the period beginning July 1, 2015.
UT Southwestern Medical Center has a long history and commitment to resident training, with more than 70 currently accredited residency and fellowship programs operating this year. Affiliation agreements with the teaching hospitals of Parkland Memorial Hospital, UT Southwestern University Hospitals (Zale Lipshy and St. Paul), and Children's Medical Center offer a wide variety of learning experiences for residents and fellows alike.
The Department is a part of the NCI-designated Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center. Our offices include the 30,000-square-foot W.A. Monty & Tex Moncrief Radiation Oncology building, the Annette Simmons Stereotactic Treatment Center that houses the Gamma Knife and CyberKnife for cranial and extracranial stereotactic radiosurgery, and the newly added 16,000-square-foot Radiation Oncology Building near St. Paul University Hospital. The new facility houses technologies such as the Vero (for SBRT treatments), two additional linear accelerators for a total of seven, and an additional CT scanner.
Department faculty and staff, which includes 16 physicians and 12 medical physicists, treat approximately 150 patients a day.
