Comments:

University Hospitals Case Medical Center (UHCMC) and Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), Cleveland Ohio, has an opening for a PGY-3 or PGY- 4 radiation oncology resident, effective July 1, 2016. The candidate for this position must have already completed internship and one or two years of radiation oncology residency in good standing at an accredited radiation oncology institution.

Most of the clinical practice and teaching is performed at the Seidman Cancer Center (SCC) at the main campus of UHCMC/CWRU, with opportunities for rotations at community network facilities in Northeast Ohio. The SCC includes three IMRT/IGRT linear accelerators with SBRT capability, CyberKnife, GammaKnife, Perfexion, Mobetron IORT, Elekta Microselectron HDR brachytherapy, and an active permanent LDR prostate brachytherapy program. Multidisciplinary tumor boards are extremely well organized and effective for all of the major disease groups. An on-site single vault Proton Center (Mevion superconducting accelerator) is currently undergoing installation with acceptance and testing and commissioning to follow and expected to begin adult and pediatric treatment in the spring of 2016. The nationally renowned UH Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital is also on the main campus, and pediatric oncology patients are treated in our department. The department’s level of RTOG/NRG clinical trials participation and excellence is among the highest in the nation. There are also many opportunities for in-house research projects. The institution has an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center status and funding.

The residency program is fully accredited by the ACGME. There are 17 clinical radiation oncology faculty members, of whom 9 are heavily engaged in main campus operations and teaching. The program also has extensive radiation physics and radiation biology teaching programs, including 3 independent radiation biology laboratories. Residents may be considered for up to one year of research elective time, recognizing the ACGME requirement for 36 months minimum of clinical rotation time. Specific clinical rotations include CNS/radiosurgery, Breast, Thoracic, GI, GU, GYN/brachytherapy, and Pediatrics/Lymphoma/Sarcoma.

In employment, as with education, University Hospitals is committed to equal opportunity and diversity. Women, veterans, members of underrepresented minority groups, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply. The institution provides resasonable accommodations to applicants with disabilities.
