Recruitment

Recruitment

Residents will be recruited via the current guidelines of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) National Residency Match Program (NRMP) with applications accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  We are currently ACGME approved for a total of 6 residents per year.  Eligible applicants will have successfully completed Part I of the boards and will be at least eligible for part II of the American Medical Boards or the Foreign Medical Board equivalent. Residents will have completed at least one year of post-graduate clinical training (PGY-1) in medicine, family practice, surgery, pediatrics, or a transitional year program prior to starting the radiation oncology residency program and will have to go through a separate match process for their PGY-1 training position.

Selection

The Program Director and his designees will review the resident applications submitted though the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and qualified residents will be invited for an interview.  Resident applicants who accept an interview date will meet with faculty and the current residents and be provided with a tour of the departmental facilities. The Program Director will be responsible for and direct the Program Coordinator in organizing the interviews and after completion of the formal applicant interview process, appropriate discussion with the faculty regarding their scoring of the applicants, and review of the applicant's credentials and recommendations, he will submit the rank order list to the NRMP.  Applicants will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, gender, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, or physical disability (that does not render them unable to perform their clinical duties). (Any ECFMG candidate, who is eligible for a J1 Visa, will be considered.) Regulations and guidelines of the National Residency Match Program (NRMP) will be strictly followed.
