A standard residency program involves 3 years of continuous training in veterinary radiation oncology and meets all requirements in the Radiation Oncology Residency Program Essential Training Standards and Requirements. An alternative residency program must also meet all requirements listed in the Radiation Oncology Residency Program Essential Training Standards and Requirements, but may be longer than 3 years in duration (maximum 5 years). In both cases, a Radiation Oncology Residency Program in veterinary radiation oncology for board certification by ACVR is intended to qualify the trainee in: the therapeutic use of ionizing radiation; clinical management of veterinary radiotherapy patients from diagnosis through treatment and follow up; a thorough understanding of radiation biology and physics; basic aspects of medical and surgical oncology; basic aspects of cancer biology; imaging techniques that are a critical part of state-of-the-art radiation oncology for assessing the stage of the disease, planning treatment and determining response to treatment. ACVR does not warrant that successful completion of an ACVR approved residency training program will lead to passage of the ACVR Radiation Oncology (Written) Board Certification Examination and/or achievement of ACVR Diplomate status.
