Medical Student Rotations in Duke Radiation Oncology

Radiation Oncology allows 3 medical students at a time to rotate in our clinic. Preference is given to students enrolled in the Duke School of Medicine. Allowing some flexibility, the Visiting Student Program will work with our faculty coordinator to schedule a rotation in the Radiation Oncology clinic.  See the  Visiting Medical Student Program website to apply for a Medical School externship at Duke Radiation Oncology.

Medical students who have rotated at Duike Radiation Oncology and apply to our Residency Program are usually ranked very highly on the residency program match list.  This is a great opportunity to become acquainted with Duke faculty.

Requests to Observe the Duke Radiation Oncology Clinic

Duke graduate students may enroll in a short clinical observation course through the Duke University Medical Physics Graduate Program.

Duke Radiation Oncology does not have a formal clinical observership or externship program at the residency level.  However, informal observation visits are allowed at the personal invitation and sponsorship of Duke Radiation Oncology faculty.
