The Department of Radiation Oncology offers two one-month unpaid observerships to both physicians and physicists to observe and learn about the various aspects of clinical patient care. During the application process, a specific area of focus may be chosen if desired; otherwise, the observer will have the opportunity to rotate between clinical radiation oncology and medical physics.

Observers will have no direct patient contact and will be supervised by sponsoring faculty members while around patients and patient care areas. Each observership is limited to one position per observation period. There is no deadline for this application as it is open year-round.

In addition, we offer a student observership to high school students and undergraduates who are interested in learning more about radiation oncology.

Please note: We only handle observerships for the Department of Radiation Oncology. If you would like to observe in a different department but do not see any information about observing, please contact the department in which you wish to observe for more information.
