Radiation Oncology Education

Residency Program

Our Residency Program mission is to educate and prepare the next generation of radiation oncologists. In so doing, we strive to help new physicians to become competent and skillful in the practice of radiation oncology; we mentor and guide residents in the delivery of compassionate and up-to-date care for cancer patients in a multidisciplinary environment; we strive to involve our residents in research endeavors to improve clinical results and patients' life quality after a cancer treatment. We nurture the next generation of thoughtful leaders in the radiation oncology specialty.

Radiation Biology

Radiation biology is the study of the underlying mechanisms of radiation-induced damage at the molecular, cellular, and organism level. Our Section of Radiation Biology includes  investigators Linda Metheny-Barlow, Jeffrey Willey and others. Our understanding of the biological mechanisms underlying radiation-induced damage will help to advance cancer therapy, to reduce normal tissue radiation injury, and to develop protection from bioterrorism.

Radiation (Medical) Physics

The department of Radiation Oncology provides graduate-level education for students pursuing a career in Medical Physics. Students are given hands-on training in the clinic in addition to exciting research projects in diagnostic and therapeutic physics. Students are selected from qualified Ph.D. candidates in the WFU Graduate School of Physics and in the Virginia Tech/ WFU School of Biomedical Engineering programs.
