The University of Washington Department of Radiation Oncology welcomes rotating medical students. The goal of rotations in our department is to introduce students to radiation oncology and its role in the management of patients with cancer. We expect rotating students to improve their skills in taking a focused history and physical examination, particularly with emphasis on the cancer-specific details. We hope that at the end of the rotation, students will have a better sense of how and when radiation may play a role in the treatment of a patient, and when it may not. This requires not only understanding some nuances of radiation oncology, but also the disciplines of surgical and medical oncology, as well as our coordination of treatment with other services such as pain management, nutrition and rehabilitation.
