About The Department

The Radiation Oncology Physics Residency program is administered within the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Orlando Health UF Health Cancer Center. The cancer center is a unit of Orlando Health, located at the main downtown Orlando campus. In addition to the main campus, there are currently four satellite facilities located in the Orlando Metro area that are a part of our department and all use a common enterprise EMR and treatment planning system. Residency training is mainly concentrated at the main center in downtown Orlando. However, the resident will also have an opportunity to rotate through the satellite facilities, exposing them to different modalities and technologies.
