Applications are accepted each fall from current Duke Radiation Oncology residents for the Duke Global Health Radiation Oncology residency. (See application process for details.)

Global health residents from the Duke Radiation Oncology residency program extend their training by one year, completing fellowships in both global health and radiation oncology in five years. Global health radiation oncology residents will engage in Master of Science in Global Health (MSc-GH) coursework during PGY4 and will attend weekly continuity clinics, conferences, and all other mandatory meetings required by the radiation oncology training program during this period of training. Trainees will return to a full time radiation oncology track during PGY5, before spending nine to eleven months during PGY6 engaging in clinical care and mentored research activities at a global partner site. Radiation oncology residents who have successfully completed PGY1 are eligible to apply with the approval of their program Director. In addition to a biweekly journal club, there will be ample opportunity to access special events and lectures throughout the training program.
