Welcome to Queen's Radiation Oncology

The Radiation Oncology program is a comprehensive five-year residency training program dedicated to the training of exceptional Radiation Oncologists. We are a fully accredited program by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.  We are focused on providing a high standard of patient care, knowledge and skills, necessary for our graduates to function independently as competent generalists in Radiation Oncology.

Our program is a well-structured system of one-on-one clinical rotations, supported by site and rotation-specific clinical objectives. There is a systematic approach to resident evaluation based on these objectives.  The Radiation Oncology program at Queen's has the advantage of being a small program with a 1:1 of residents to staff radiation oncologists.  Residents who choose to come to our program quickly realize that they are being welcomed into our family which exists in an extremely friendly and supportive environment.  Our staff are committed to educating and nurturing each resident to achieve their full potential with a thorough preparedness for the RCPSC examination.

We welcome enquiries from prospective residents and I look forward to hearing from you.
