The Emory Radiation Oncology Program is a five-semester, post-baccalaureate program leading to a master of medical science degree. The first three semesters of the program consist of lecture and laboratory courses. The second year of the curriculum provides clinical training in radiation oncology physics. During the second year, the student, working both alone and as a part of a team, gains experience in managing the various physics problems encountered in treating patients with radiation. As a result, the student will acquire a high level of proficiency in dealing with the medical physics needs of patients under the care of a radiation oncologist.
