Residents are promoted each year to the next level of training based on satisfactory performance in all areas of training. These include, but are not limited to: Competency-based goals and objectives for each assignment at each training level; Clinical acumen; ACR In-Training Exam scores; passing scores in Radiobiology and Physics courses given yearly by our faculty; evaluations by faculty on each rotation; 360-degree evaluations by multiple members of the various divisions in the department; attendance at all departmental conferences and appropriate tumor boards; and ability to work effectively with peers and co-workers in the department.
Our program has integrated the ACGME competencies into our curriculum. Our “resident handbook” has specific details; however, please visit ACGME for specific details on the ACGME program requirements for Graduate Medical Education in Radiation Oncology.
