Radiation Oncology Residency: Life in NYC

Memorial Sloan Kettering is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. We are part of one of the greatest concentrations of scientific and clinical expertise in the world, which includes Weill Cornell Medical College and The Rockefeller University within just a few blocks.

Benefits and Housing

Our comprehensive benefits package (including healthcare plans) allows residents to enjoy a high quality of life.

Residents can find affordable, subsidized housing in a variety of locations and types. Many apartments are near our facilities. Though housing is offered based on availability, every current resident who has requested housing has received accommodations.

Apartment size is based on both availability and need, with preference for larger units given to residents who are married and/or have children.

During the interview process, you can request a tour of a typical unit.

Local Activities

Our campus is located near some of New York City's best stores and restaurants. We are only a few blocks from Central Park, which offers miles of bicycling and running trails, tennis courts, skating rinks, outdoor concerts, and more.

Our campus also borders the East River Park Promenade, which features a bicycling, running, and skating path with breathtaking views of the East River and the many bridges that connect Manhattan to Queens, the Bronx, and Brooklyn.

Many famous museums are nearby as well: the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Frick Collection, the Museum of the City of New York, and more.

If not within walking distance, New York’s cultural, athletic, and entertainment resources are easily accessible using the city's extensive public transportation system.
