Message from the Chair

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 typically contains 10 residents who perform clinical rotations at the Mount Sinai campus on the Upper East Side, Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Elmhurst Hospital, and the James J. Peters Bronx VA Hospital. Elective time for pediatrics and other subspecialties 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, stereotactic body radiation therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, and intensity modulated radiation therapy. Additionally, we provide training in new techniques with increasing clinical use, such as intracoronary brachytherapy and treatment of skin cancer with superficial radiation. With Mount Sinai’s participation in the New York Proton Consortium, there will also be opportunities for training in proton beam therapy.

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 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 percent pass rate on the board certification examinations.

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