PROF Program

Accredited by the Texas Medical Board, the Precision Radiation Oncology Fellowship (PROF) is a one-year training program that begins on July 1 and ends June 30. The clinical training focuses on the application of technologies that provide highly customized treatments for patients, including adaptive radiotherapy accelerators that can optimize the daily treatment based on the individual’s anatomy of that day.

The fellowship curriculum will address candidates’ varying needs and interests in clinical experience, process implementation, and research. With affiliation agreements with teaching hospitals that include Parkland Memorial Hospital, UT Southwestern University Hospitals (William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital and Zale Lipshy Pavilion – William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital), and Children’s Health, we offer a wide variety of learning experiences.

Led by Dr. David Sher, our teams are committed to learning and superior patient care, and we consistently attract top-achieving applicants who share those same principles. We hope you’ll consider our program.
