Radiation Oncology Residency


Welcome to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s radiation oncology residency program. With 24 residents and 57 faculty members at our Manhattan campus, we are one of the largest radiation oncology training programs in the country. Our residents come from diverse educational and personal backgrounds, bringing their unique strengths to our residency.

Throughout their four years of training, our residents work one-on-one with leaders in clinical radiation oncology, medical physics, translational research, and basic science. Residents become highly trained in modern radiotherapy techniques, including proton therapy, radiosurgery, image-guided radiotherapy, brachytherapy, and procedures such as intraoperative radiation therapy, total body irradiation, and total skin electron beam therapy.

As part of training in a comprehensive cancer center, residents also routinely learn from experts in surgical oncology, medical oncology, and translational medicine. A dedicated year of protected research time provides residents an opportunity to participate in scholarly clinical and/or laboratory research.

Our graduates leave this program well prepared to become leaders in radiation oncology.

Our Mission

We train future leaders in radiation oncology by providing a collaborative, multidisciplinary clinical and academic experience at one of the world’s premier cancer centers.

We seek to equip our graduates with the skills needed to diagnose and treat both common and rare oncological conditions; to become innovators in clinical, translational, and laboratory-based research; and to provide superior care to future patients.
