Residency Program Director Welcome

Welcome to the website of the UC San Diego Department of Radiation Medicine and Applied Sciences (RMAS) Radiation Oncology Residency Program. Our Program is an accredited 4-year residency designed to surpass the standards laid out by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Approved for 12 residents (3 per year), our program offers residents outstanding faculty mentorship, state-of-the-art facilities and substantial numbers of patients and procedures so that each of them can excel in their training.

I am especially proud of our exceptional didactic program comprised of a wide range of lectures and conferences based on a disease month system, ensuring that residents receive an in depth exposure to all disease sites. In addition, the didactic program includes a wide range of specialized topics include classes on such topics as the Business of Radiation Oncology and Professionalism & Leadership, among others.

Another unique feature of our program is an international elective during the PGY5 year that allows residents to spend a month doing clinical radiation oncology at a location of their choice. We encourage them to make this an international elective to a developing country for a unique experience and perspective on radiation therapy.
