Is there such a thing are radiation oncology research? Is it mostly based in physics or is their a clinical side to it as well?

just curious

Getianshi, be assured that rad-onc research will live long and prosper. There is basic science in both biology and physics as well as clinical research. There are several journals devoted to these topics, and I suggest checking out an issue of International Journal of Radiation Oncology Biology and Physics to get an idea of what's out there.

Sadly, Getianshi, there is no such thing as radiation oncology research. Additionally, all rad oncs do is theoretical physics, without the PhD.

Sorry- thought this was April 1st. Actually, if someone out there is looking for a summer research gig, Anderson has a deal where they'll pay you $2, 500 to do rad onc clinical research after your 1st or second year. A 2nd year buddy is doing this and said he thinks they're still taking apps- see the website here:

Ah, Houston in the summer- it's heat-tastic!!

spending the summer in houston is a great preview... find out if you can stand the heat & humidity.

one out of town consult told the team: "i'd rather be dead than spend 7 weeks in houston"

There is a ton o research in clinical stuff, radiobiology and physics. also with melding topics like nucmed and radonc treatment planning. There is also the "Holman" pathway for those who want their residency to have a substantial research component.
