Page Content


The Advanced Radiation Oncology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, provides an educational experience that adds depth and breadth to the knowledge and skills that you obtained during a radiation oncology residency.

The design of this fellowship is flexible and can be tailored to fit your clinical or basic science interests. You may select a clinical fellowship, a basic science fellowship, or a combined clinical and research fellowship.

A clinical advanced radiation oncology fellowship at Mayo Clinic allows an in-depth experience beyond what is expected in a residency. Clinical fellowships last 12 months or longer, depending on the focus of the training. It offers opportunities to strengthen and broaden your technical skills in areas such as:

  • Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and Gamma Knife
  • Image-guided radiotherapy
  • Interoperative radiotherapy
  • Brachytherapy
  • Proton beam therapy

Advanced radiation oncology basic science research fellowships are 12 months, as determined by your laboratory mentor and based on your interests.

Program history

The Advanced Radiation Oncology Fellowship was established in 1994 through a generous endowment gift from Mr. and Mrs. R.B. Davenport III and William L. Davenport, given in honor of Mayo Clinic oncologist Dr. John D. Earle. Typically, one fellow completes training in the program each year.
