Program Highlights

About our program

We have an excellent group of residents who interact well and excel in their clinical and research endeavors.

As a relatively small program, we can provide residents with close supervision and are responsive to their needs.

Our catchment area includes all of Manitoba and much of Northwestern Ontario. Most, if not all, oncologic patients within the catchment area go through CancerCare Manitoba thus seen by the residents.

One of only three Gamma Knife Radiosurgery units in Canada provide for a unique experience in stereotactic radiosurgery.

Winnipeg hosts world-class research facilities that welcome collaborative endeavors. Our residents can participate at the level of principle investigator on sophisticated, leading edge projects.

Our graduates have a very high success rate at the Royal College Certification Examination and have successfully acquired fellowships throughout Canada and the United States. All have also successfully obtained permanent employment in Radiation Oncology.
