Our residents partake in a wide array of
research opportunities during residency, with the goal of developing a unique skillset to optimally position them for the next phases in their careers. Residents have up to 12 months of protected research time during residency, during which they participate in an array of research domains including basic science, translational research, clinical trial design, imaging, genetics, data science, as well as health disparities research. Among those with an interest in education our residents have taught in the school of medicine, worked on innovative education applications, and led education focused research trials. For residents with a proclivity towards research we encourage and support applications for research grant support. I can proudly say we have residents who have successfully competed for numerus grants through ACRO, RSNA, ASCO, AHRQ, and the NIH.
Finally, at the core of our program, we have a steadfast commitment towards equity, diversity, and inclusion, which includes a curricular thread woven throughout all years of residency. Our patient catchment area encompasses a racially, ethnically, and socioeconomically diverse cohort of cancer patients. Lastly, another unique feature of our program is an international elective during the PGY4 or 5 year that allows residents to spend a month abroad working in clinical radiation oncology at a location of their choice. We encourage our residents to make this international elective in a developing country for a unique experience and valuable perspective on the intersection of radiation therapy and global health.
