Mission Statement

Our mission is to broaden the medical and personal skills of our trainees to enable them to effectively practice medicine in radiation oncology. Our faculty offers a mentor-apprentice educational model in the radiation oncology clinic within The James Cancer Hospital. We provide 3 preparatory courses: Clinical Radiation Oncology, Radiation Physics, and Radiation Biology. The educational component of training is supplemented with weekly chart rounds, cancer center grand rounds, monthly journal club, resident-led case conferences, and morbidity and mortality conferences. The cancer center holds over 14 disease-specific tumor boards and multidisciplinary conferences. Our residents participate in annual mock oral boards and exam reviews to hone their information presentation skills.

OSU Radiation Oncology provides a complete spectrum of radiation therapy modalities, so all technical skills can be learned in an optimal setting. This includes; gamma knife stereotactic radiosurgery, linac-based stereotactic radiosurgery, ample gynecologic and genitourinary brachytherapy, a varied and robust pediatric experience, and stereotactic body radiation therapy. Our $1.1 billion dollar cancer hospital, constructed in 2014, provides an ideal environment to acquire and hone your skills. The Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute is a NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center where medical and surgical oncologists are in close proximity to radiation oncology colleagues; this provides the ideal environment for clinical, education, and research interactions. We emphasize the need for radiation oncologists to function as partner in a multidisciplinary cancer medicine team.
