Radiation Oncology Locum Tenens Physician Job Description

Radiation oncologists are specialist physicians who utilize ionizing radiation — techniques like megavoltage X-rays or radionuclides — in the treatment of cancer. As one of the three primary specialties involved with cancer treatment, radiation is given to patients as a curative modality, either as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with surgeries and/or chemotherapy techniques. These treatments are used palliatively, as a way to relieve the symptoms of patients with cancers. At the same time, radiation oncologists may also use these treatments to treat certain benign diseases and benign tumors. Professionals in this field work closely with other physicians such as interventional radiologists, surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, and internal medicine subspecialists in order to produce the best possible outcomes for patients.

Education Requirements for Radiation Oncology Locum Tenens Physician Jobs

In order to become a radiation oncology locum tenens physician in the United States, an extensive amount of training is required. Individuals must first complete a four-year residency in the proper professional setting, after having held an internship with a degree from the proper undergraduate program. Residents will gain skills and knowledge regarding clinical oncology, the physics and biology of ionizing radiation, and the treatment of cancer patients using radiation. One of the final steps to becoming a radiation oncologist includes earning a certification by either the American Board of Radiology (ABR) or the American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS) for those with M.D. degrees. For the holder of D.O. degrees, certification is possible through the American Osteopathic Board of Radiology (AOBR). As a highly specialized profession, radiation oncologists can expect to make an average of $418,228 per year with jobs found across America!
