Radiation Oncology Residency Program

Department of Radiation Oncology

Thank you for your interest in learning more about our excellent Residency Training Program in Radiation Oncology at the University of Rochester Medical Center's Wilmot Cancer Center.

Radiation Oncology is a full academic department located in the Wilmot Cancer Center, within the University of Rochester Medical Center / Strong Memorial Hospital. The department has seen much growth over the past several years—increased space, expanded technology, greater complexity and sophistication of treatment planning, and a heightened workforce—all resulting in prolific outcomes for the department, allowing us to provide our residents with the utmost quality in training.

Under the guidance of Chairperson Yuhchyau Chen, MD, PhD, the department continues as a leading force in both cancer treatment and research. Our highly professional and nationally recognized faculty are pioneers in the use of rapidly evolving treatment modalities that will become the mainstay of future radiation therapy.
