About Our Residency

The Radiation Oncology Residency Program at the Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals is a Residency Review Committee and American Board of Radiology fully certified program designed to educate residents in the current principles and practice of radiation oncology. A four year program of post-internship radiation oncology is provided with the goal of educating residents in all aspects of radiation oncology with special emphasis on the multidisciplinary treatment of cancer patients and preparing them for successful execution of the board exams. Two resident positions are filled annually.
