A Career in Radiation Oncology

A Radiation Oncologist is a specialist medical doctor with training in the use of radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy) and in the overall medical care of cancer patients. Radiation therapy can be used to cure or reduce the symptoms of cancer. Radiation oncologists are ultimately responsible for assessing individual patients, determining the best management plan, overseeing treatment and assessing progress.

Radiation oncologists work closely with other medical specialists, especially surgeons, medical oncologists and palliative care physicians, as part of a team caring for patients with cancer.
