Thank you for your interest in the radiation oncology training program at UC San Diego. With two former program directors on our faculty, we have developed an innovative and comprehensive program that focuses on resident education and professional development. Resident rotations and conference schedules are organized around disease sites, and led by experts in each area. As a primary Varian training site, we have access to the newest technology, including state of the art image-guidance and linac-based stereotactic radiotherapy. We are also affiliated with Rady Children’s Hospital and the Scripps Proton Center, which, in the setting of a highly diverse patient population in San Diego, provides breadth and depth to our residents’ clinical experience.
As our health care system continues to evolve and further embrace multidisciplinary care, our goal is to train excellent physicians that are well-rounded in oncology and highly skilled in radiation therapy. We have incorporated training in the business of radiation oncology and one year of protected time for research and academic development, with the goal of preparing residents for careers in either academics or private practice.
Last but not least, we foster an environment of collaboration and collegiality, which is an important factor with every new addition to our team. This year we look forward to accepting 3 new residents into our residency program. Welcome!
