Trainee Publications

Throughout their training, residents have many opportunities to participate in prospective protocol studies as well as to conduct retrospective clinical research. The results of such analyses are an integral part of clinical research and have frequently led to major changes in radiotherapy technique and philosophy. Our residents regularly present their research at scientific conferences such as the annual meetings of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, the Radiological Society of North America and the American Radium Society. Publications resulting from their research efforts can be found in many radiation oncology and other specialty journals.


This bibliography represents published research manuscripts of our current trainees.
