Guidelines for Senior Year for Students in Radiation Oncology
Here are your Guidelines for Senior Year for Students in Radiation Oncology.
Most students who go into Radiation Oncology complete their subinternship in Internal Medicine. This will be useful as you approach your internship. Although internships in Pediatrics, Surgery or surgical specialties, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Family Practice, and Transitional years are acceptable by the American Board of Radiology (ABR, http://www.theabr.org/ic-ro-landing), most residents complete an internship in Internal Medicine.
An elective in Radiation Oncology is essential and should be scheduled in Period 1, 2 or 3. Electives in Medical subspecialties that are relevant in this subject should be considered, including Medical Oncology, GI, Pulmonary, and Neurology. Electives in Surgical subspecialties that are relevant in Radiation Oncology should be considered, including Surgical Oncology, Neurosurgery, Otolaryngology, Thoracic Surgery, GI Surgery, Urology, Gynecologic Oncology, and Orthopedic Oncology. Electives in Surgical Pathology and Radiology are recommended as well.
