Morning Conference
Resident-directed morning conferences occur on Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:15 - 9:00 AM. Attendings will also be present to discuss treatment methods and help summarize the literature.

Friday Lecture Series/Didactics
Lectures in radiation physics, statistics and radiobiology are attended by residents on Friday mornings.

Journal Club
Once a month, an attending will choose pertinent literature in their specialty for discussion. Residents will then present the articles with the supervising attending.

Multidisciplinary Tumor Boards
Residents attend multidisciplinary tumor boards relevant to their rotation. The exposure to medical oncology, pathology, surgical oncology, and radiology serves to meet ACGME requirements in these areas.

Clinical Rotations
Residents will rotate through various disease sites in two-month blocks. The rotations include: Lung/Liver, Breast/Gyn, Head and Neck/GU, Peds/CNS, and GI/Lymphoma. Residents will also have two dedicated research rotations with an opportunity to complete an elective at an outside institution.
