UAMS Department of Radiation Oncology and Radiation Oncology Center provide comprehensive educational programs in radiation oncology and physics.

The primary goal for our Radiation Oncology Residency Program is to prepare residents for a career in Radiation Oncology practice in either a community or academic setting. Our community setting will focus on practice in rural Arkansas, while the academic setting will develop either clinical educators, with the opportunity to teach medical students and residents, or physician scientists, focusing on translational and clinical cancer research. Our strong multidisciplinary program will provide exposure to a variety of clinical instructors who will reinforce the importance of multidisciplinary treatment planning in clinical oncology practice.

The two-year Radiation Oncology Therapeutic Medical Physics Residency Program at UAMS is designed for candidates with a doctoral degree from a CAMPEP-accredited medical physics graduate program who are interested in pursuing careers as Clinical Medical Physicists in Radiation Oncology. This program concentrates on the medical applications of physics in the clinical treatment of cancer patients with radiation.
