Radiation Oncology Residency

Program Director: Mira Shah, M.D.
Program Coordinator: Lorrie Cook

The Division of Radiation Oncology offers one or two positions yearly on an alternating basis for a four-year residency program supported by Henry Ford Health System, one of the largest and most respected integrated health care delivery systems in the country. Residents utilize the latest technology and train from a highly skilled clinical staff at Henry Ford Hospital, a nationally renowned teaching and research institution in the Detroit, Michigan, region.

What makes Henry Ford’s radiation residency unique?

The Henry Ford Radiation Oncology Residency Program is especially unique, as residents are able to train at the Henry Ford Cancer Institute (HFCI) - a multidisciplinary program committed to prevention, early detection, treatment and research for cancer care. Located at Henry Ford Hospital, the HFCI is one of the largest cancer centers in Michigan.

Residents also will be involved in state-of-the-art research such as our new NIH-funded project analyzing the benefits of gene therapy to enhance the effectiveness of radiation therapy. Another benefit for our residents is exposure to a wide spectrum and large quantity of patients, as our hospital serves the metropolitan population of Detroit and the surrounding suburbs. This provides an exceptional environment for learning because of the multiple populations we serve and the breadth of experience they provide. Our training program is designed to provide a well-rounded education in clinical oncology, and to offer our residents participation in a variety of state-of-the-art clinical and basic science research programs.
