Greetings from the Director
    1. Purpose of the residency program
  • Our centerí»s resident training course is designed to train outstanding medical doctors as qualified radiation oncologists through clinical experience and accumulation of up-to-date knowledge. We provide systematic training programs and educational environment to achieve this goal.
    2. Details of the residency program
  • a) Training period
    The training lasts 4 years. In the 1st and 2nd year, residents attend lectures and accumulate experience across all aspects of radiotherapy oncology.
    In the 3rd and 4th year, residents apply their expertise to the clinical cases encountered in the department under the supervision of a staff radiation oncologist. Clinical rotations can be performed in other affiliated hospitals for up to 3 months with permission from the Program Director.

  • b) Professors
    Lectures on clinical radiation oncology, radiation therapy physics, and radiation biology will be given by professors. Invited professors are arranged for selected topics.

  • c) Educational program
    The educational program is well organized and covers the entire field of radiation oncology. Components of the educational program include clinical rotation, lectures, and research. Clinical rotation includes 2 dimensional radiotherapy, 3 dimensional conformal radiotherapy, intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), intensity-modulated radiosurgery (IMRS), image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT), stereotactic radiosurgery, MRI-based intracavitary brachytherapy, interstitial brachytherapy, tomotherapy, proton therapy for all kinds of tumors. The lecture program covers clinical radiation oncology, radiation biology and radiation physics. Lectures on radiation physics are given in the first semester, while lectures on clinical radiation oncology and radiation biology are taught in the second semester every year. Research proposals should be submitted to the Program Director within 6 months of enrollment. Residents are encouraged to present their research at national and international conferences, and to publish at least two papers in peer-reviewed international journals.

  • d) Conferences
    Residents are required to attend selected conferences held by the hospital and individual departments of the National Cancer Center. Conferences focus on new patients, treatment planning, research strategies, journal review and physics.
