Chairman's Message

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Radiation Oncology Training Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Our training program currently contains seven residents who perform clinical rotations mostly at the Mount Sinai campus and the James J. Peters Bronx VA Hospital. Elective time for pediatrics and other subspecialities at outside institutions is also available

At Mount Sinai, we treat our patients with state-of-the-art technology. We have an extensive clinical program and our residents develop expertise in brachytherapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy, three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, and stereotactic body radiation therapy. Additionally, we provide training in new techniques with increasing clinical use, such as intracoronary brachytherapy and the treatment of skin cancer with superficial radiation.

We offer and expect a high level of scholarship, providing each resident with support and opportunities for research and exploration in this field. Our residents and medical students working in the department have presented original research at local, national, and even international meetings. One recent graduate formed a start-up company based on the work he did while at Mount Sinai.

Our graduates are employed at academic centers and high quality private practices throughout the country and have a 100% pass rate on the board certification examinations.

I appreciate your interest in our training program and invite you to browse our pages to learn more about our department, faculty and residents.
