Radiation Oncology Interest Group

The UAMS Radiation Oncology Interest Group is dedicated to fostering an interest in the exciting field of Radiation Oncology. Radiation Oncology is a small field that students have limited exposure to in the medical curriculum, and ROIG aims to bridge this gap. We connect interested students to key resources in the Radiation Oncology Department and provide opportunities to shadow, conduct research, and network with the department.


We have weekly informal research meetings (Thursdays, 12-1pm, Teleconference room 2nd floor Radiation Oncology Department) that all students interested in research are welcome to attend. Residents and faculty will be at the meeting and can help connect interested students with projects.
