Medical Student Clerkship

The Department of Radiation Oncology faculty members are very involved in teaching and mentoring medical students. 

MD Education

Timothy Kruser, MD, delivers an introduction to radiation oncology to all medical students through his M2 lecture.

Clerkship

Dr. Kruser runs the clerkship program, advising medical students who are interested in pursuing the radiation oncology specialty. One or two students are rotating through the department at any given time, with a total of approximately 15 students per year. An exploratory rotation lasts for two weeks, while those who have committed to the specialty participate in a four-week rotation. The latter are required to give a one-hour presentation at the rotation’s end.
