Applicant Interviews

Invitations to Interview at Duke Radiation Oncology

Duke Radiation Oncology holds 3 days of interviews — one in November, December and January.

Our Residency Applications Committee reviews all applications received through ERAS and recommends applicants to interview.  In mid-October, we will send invitations to selected applicants. Following acceptance of our invitation, the Residency Program Coordinator will assist applicants with arrangements for the interview visit.

Interview Day Schedule

Due to the large number of applicants being interviewed, schedules will be tight and appointments will be spread throughout the day. We encourage applicants to schedule return flights for after 6:00 PM or else for the next day to ensure that they will be able to meet the Department Chairman and all key faculty.
