The Radiation Oncology Residency at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, offers a categorical program that combines a one-year Transitional Year Residency (PGY-1) with a four-year Radiation Oncology Residency (PGY-2 through PGY-5). There is not a separate application for the preliminary year.
The objective of the Radiation Oncology Residency is to educate and train physicians to be skillful in the practice of radiation oncology and be caring and compassionate in the treatment of patients. At the completion of the program, physicians are ready for the demands of private practice, academic practice, or a fellowship program.
The Radiation Oncology Residency at Mayo Clinic is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
You will be eligible to take the board certification examination offered by the American Board of Radiology upon completion of the Radiation Oncology Residency.
The Radiation Oncology Residency at Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona began in July 2013. It is anticipated that one resident will complete training in this program annually.
