The program will be recruiting for two residency positions, starting in July 2022, during this recruitment season. Residency interviews will be held virtually in December 2020. All Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) applications are reviewed by the Radiation Medicine Residency Committee. Invitations to interview with the program are sent to selected candidates in November via an online scheduling portal. Approximately 15-20 applicants are selected for personal interviews, per residency slot available. Interviews will be conducted by faculty physicians, current residents and select department staff.
