Medical Student Electives

If you are a medical student, you can apply for a four-week radiation oncology elective. Applications are processed through our Graduate Medical Education (GME) office.

When your application has been reviewed and processed, you will receive a confirmation directly from the GME office indicating your status for the elective. If you are accepted for the elective, the program coordinator will contact you regarding your elective preferences about a week prior to the start of the elective.

Medical students have the option to focus on one disease site per week (breast, central nervous system, lung, head and neck, genitourinary, gastrointestinal, gynecologic, or lymphoma) and to work with various attendings during the month. In the last week of their elective, medical students present cases to the faculty and residents.
