The radiation oncology clerkship provides outpatient experience

We are now accepting applications for 4 week visiting student electives. Apply through VSLO: Visiting Student Learning Opportunities.

The radiation oncology clerkship provides outpatient experience in the workup and management of a variety of oncology patients. As part of the radiation oncology team, students will have the opportunity to do physical examinations and perform certain procedures with patient consent. Students will be included in all resident education experiences such as tumor boards, workshops, conferences and journal clubs.  

This elective is offered during blocks 1-7 (April – September) to fourth year medical students who are interested in matching to a radiation oncology residency program. Positions are limited. Interested non- VCU students must apply through VSLO.

3rd year VCU medical students are encouraged to apply for foundational electives and ambulatory clerkships in blocks 7-13

4th year medical students in good standing, who are planning a career in radiation oncology, are eligible for a clerkship. View the Sway here.

Shadowing opportunities – at this time we are only accepting shadowing medical students through  the VCU Radiation Oncology Student Interest Group
