Qualified candidates must have completed an internship, and preference will be shown to those candidates who have completed all or part of training in another oncologic specialty. This is a 4-year clinical training program offered by the Radiation Oncology Branch, CCR, NCI. The program is organized in conjunction with National Capital Consortium, through Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD.
All CCR residents and clinical fellows train at the 240-bed NIH Clinical Center, internationally recognized as the premier hospital dedicated to translational research and clinical care. Elective rotations offer residents and clinical fellows the opportunity to have direct experience in the care of patients enrolled in investigational protocols in the disciplines of allergy and immunology, anatomic pathology, critical care medicine/internal medicine, hematopathology, infectious diseases, medical genetics, and transfusion medicine. Participants will have first-hand exposure to the design, conduct, and management of clinical trials.
All of CCR’s programs are part of Graduate Medical Education at NIH.
