Radiation Oncology Residency

We perform more than 7,000 radiation treatments each year for patients in need of compassionate cancer care.

The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine - Scott & White Radiation Oncology Residency is a four-year program that is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

We accept two residents per year.

Curriculum

Our program consists of PGY-2 through 5 years, which include clinical radiation oncology rotations, elective rotations and a research rotation.

Residents rotate through each of six radiation oncology services at least twice during their training, once as junior residents and once as senior residents.

As they progress through their training, residents take on greater responsibility in the care of their patients, gain greater insight into that area of practice and mentor junior residents and medical students.

Using advanced technology and techniques, our training facility performs more than 7,000 radiation treatments each year for patients in need of compassionate cancer care. We treat a wide breadth of cases and promote a collaborative learning and teaching environment.

At the end of training, residents are well-versed in all of our current treatment technologies:

  • Three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3DCRT)
  • Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery using the Novalis Tx radiosurgery platform
  • High dose-rate brachytherapy for H&N, sarcoma, lung and gynecological cancers
  • Low dose-rate brachytherapy for prostate cancer
  • Train at one of U.S. News & World Report's top hospitals in Texas

    Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple is a 640-bed teaching and research hospital with a Level I trauma center.
