Residency in Radiation Oncology

Message from the Residency Program Director

Hello, welcome and thank you for your interest in the Radiation Oncology Residency Program at the University of Louisville School of Medicine’s James Graham Brown Cancer Center. We are a modern and dynamic department, highly focused on multi-disciplinary and holistic patient care.  Our faculty is diverse and highly sub-specialized. We offer training on the most technologically-advanced Radiation Oncology equipment, a dedicated Brachytherapy program, and access to many national and institutional clinical trials.

Our vibrant residents are vital to the clinical operations of our department and this residency program is certainly not an observational experience.  Residents gain a high degree of confidence along a highly complicated disease spectrum, unique to our urban setting and our regional underserved geographic location.  As a result, our residents do extraordinarily well on the American Board of Radiology examinations and are well prepared for either private practice or academic pursuits.

We believe you will find our department friendly, compassionate, rigorous and stimulating.  Louisville offers a high quality of life, an exciting cultural and restaurant scene, and world-class events like the Kentucky Derby and PGA Championship.

We hope you find this website informative and encourage you to apply to our program and become part of our team.

Thank you,


Neal E. Dunlap, M.D.
