Purpose Prior studies forecasted an incipient shortage of medical oncologists as a result of the aging US population, but the radiation oncology workforce has not been studied. Accordingly, we projected demand for radiation therapy and supply of radiation oncologists in 2010 and 2020 to determine whether a similar shortage may exist for this specialty. Methods Demand for radiation therapy in 2010 and 2020 was estimated by multiplying current radiation utilization rates (as calculated with Survei...

The Affordable Care Act will expand Medicaid to cover all adults with family incomes below 133% of the federal poverty level. But insurance eligibility doesn't always translate into enrollment, and heterogeneity among state Medicaid programs makes the outcome uncertain.

Abstract Purpose Radiation oncology continues to evolve as a specialty. In the early 1990s, issues of manpower oversupply, resource allocation, development of academic radiation oncology, and residency training curricula were fervently considered and evaluated. Much of this effort continues. This communication endeavors to examine the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) results as they pertain to radiation oncology to identify and document applicant trends over the last decade. Methods an...

Abstract Purpose To report trends in the number and types of applicants and matched trainees to radiation oncology in comparison to other specialties participating in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) between 2010-2020. Methods Data from the NRMP and Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) were obtained for 18 medical specialties between 2010-2020. Number and type of applicants and matched trainees relative to available positions in the NRMP and Supplemental Offer and Acceptan...

BACKGROUND: Both medical education and radiation oncology have progressed significantly in the past decade, but a generalized overview of educational research for radiation oncology residents has not been produced. This study examines recent research trends in medical education for residents in radiation oncology through a scoping review. METHODS: We conducted a scoping review of medical education research for residents in radiation oncology to survey the research trends. We used publications av...

Purpose A significant physician shortage has been projected to occur by 2025, and demand for oncologists is expected to outpace supply to an even greater degree. In response to this, many have called to increase the number of radiation oncology residency positions. The purpose of this study is to evaluate National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) data for the number of residency positions between 2004 and 2015 as well as the number and caliber of applicants for those positions and to compare rad...

Purpose: To test the hypothesis that medical student radiation oncology elective rotation grades are inflated and cannot be used to distinguish residency applicants. Methods and Materials: The records of 196 applicants to a single radiation oncology residency program in 2011 and 2012 were retrospectively reviewed. The grades for each rotation in radiation oncology were collected and converted to a standardized 4-point grading scale (honors, high pass, pass, fail). Pass/fail grades were scored as...

Radiation oncology (RO) is enjoying a renaissance period as a highly sought after specialty attracting highly talented candidates. Those who succeed in entering have impressive track records and even more impressive future potential. Today’s academic climate is increasingly harsh in terms of availability of resources for game-changing research projects; it is especially challenging for trainees to obtain the necessary support, from mentorship and guidance to time and funding. We shed some light ...

Purpose Students applying to radiation oncology residency programs complete 1 or more radiation oncology clerkships. This study assesses student experiences and perspectives during radiation oncology clerkships. The impact of didactic components and number of clerkship experiences in relation to confidence in clinical competency and preparation to function as a first-year radiation oncology resident are evaluated. Methods and Materials An anonymous, Internet-based survey was sent via direct e-ma...
