The Department of Radiation Oncology is in the new Perelman Center. Occupying approximately 80,000 square feet on the Concourse Level, the new treatment facilities includes the most advanced proton and conventional radiation treatment modalities available as well as public spaces designed for the highest levels of patient comfort.
Resident rotations are broken down into 2-3 month blocks by disease sites. The majority of the rotations are a one resident, one attending model. In addition to the core, site specific blocks (Lung, Breast, GI, Lymphoma, Pediatrics, Gyn, Head & Neck, GU and CNS), residents will also rotate at the Philadelphia VA Hospital and Pennsylvania Hospital with the opportunity to treat a mix of all disease sites at one time.
Additionally, residents in the department are provided with one year of elective time during their training. Most commonly our residents have used this time to pursue academic research within the department. However, many of our residents have used this time to pursue advanced research training, or to gain clinical experience outside of the department. Listed below is a selection of recent resident elective experiences:
- Masters in Science in Clinical Epidemiology from Penn
- Masters in Health Policy Research from Penn
- Masters in Public Health from Johns Hopkins University
- Holman Pathway Lab Research
