Affiliated with the University of Toronto Department of Radiation Oncology, the Radiation Medicine Program (RMP) at Princess Margaret provides students with outstanding clinical and research experiences. RMP offers students a wide range of programs and technologies in a supportive, collegial multidisciplinary learning environment. Weekly academic rounds, tumour boards and case conferences provide students with a glimpse into the high-quality, evidence-based multidisciplinary treatments offered to patients at Princess Margaret.

Students are encouraged to take a hands-on approach to learning and will develop their clinical skills by seeing and assessing a wide variety of patients at various points in the cancer experience. Many RMP staff serve as research mentors for medical students taking a research course.

Students wanting an elective or ambulatory community experience or a job shadowing opportunity in radiation oncology during undergraduate medical studies should consider an elective in the Radiation Medicine Program at Princess Margaret.
