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.
We are very pleased to be able to offer one-month rotations at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Department of Radiation Oncology.
During the rotation, residents will primarily spend their time with one disease site. Many of the rotations have significant exposure and training in proton beam therapy. We are unable at this time to guarantee a specific disease site, but we will do our best to honor your preferences.
To apply for a rotation, please send the following information to Cordelia Baffic at firstname.lastname@example.org:
Once we receive the formal request, we will be in touch shortly. If the rotation is approved by our program director, Dr. Samuel Swisher McClure, then we will need to setup a PLA (Program Legal Agreement) with the resident’s home institution. This could take between 1-3 months to process. In addition, the outside resident will need to be credentialed at Penn and partake of a one day EPIC training prior to the start of the rotation. Please note that final approval of the rotation rests upon having a fully executed PLA and being fully credentialed by the Penn GME office.
All the credentialing documents can be emailed to my attention except for the MT license which must be received in its original form with the appropriate required documentation. Once the completed MT license is received, then the Penn GME office will review and approve and submit directly to the PA State Board. It may take 2-3 months to get an MT license approved by the Pennsylvania State Board. Listed below and attached are some of the documents that will be needed in order to be credentialed.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
