Clinical Fellowships

UCSF offers two clinical fellowship opportunities to those physicians who wish to expand their expertise in Radiation Oncology.

Medical Student Fellowships

The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of California, San Francisco offers an annual medical student fellowship to fourth-year medical students. The fellowship will support a medical student to spend 8 weeks in the Department of Radiation Oncology at UCSF. It carries a stipend of $500. The fellowship will be awarded annually at the discretion of the department.

During the 8 weeks experience, the student will spend half of his/her time in the clinic, time interviewing patients, physical examination, and learning about the natural history, and treatment techniques of cancer.

The student will spend the other half of his/her time participating in a small research project. The findings of that review will be presented to the staff and residents. In some cases, a paper may result from this research.

Prerequisite for the fellowship is the completion of at least three years of training at an ACGME approved United States medical school.
