Length of Program

The Program offers a four-year training program in Radiation Oncology, following the successful completion of a preliminary training year.


Applicants must meet the following qualifications: satisfactory completion of PGY-1 level or greater year in a United States ACGME accredited program. The first year of postgraduate resident clinical training must be conducted in internal medicine, family practice, obstetrics/gynecology, surgery or surgical specialties, pediatrics, or a transitional-year program. PGY-1 preliminary training is not provided by the Radiation Oncology Residency Program. The experience will then be followed with four years of focused training in Radiation Oncology.

Residents must have passing scores on USMLE Steps 1 and 2 or equivalent; qualify for a Florida State training license, BLS and ACLS certification and current ECFMG certificate (EFMGs only); and have the fulfillment of general criteria set forth for residents by the University of South Florida College of Medicine.
