MGH Affiliation

Overview

We have been affiliated with the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) since 1989. Our departments work together on many different levels.

Clinical

Patients benefit from the extensive knowledge, experience and resources of both BMC and the MGH Radiation Oncology Departments. Our physicians have dual appointments at BMC and at MGH, and regularly collaborate on research studies and protocols as well as participate in multidisciplinary conferences at both locations. In addition, many of our physicians, past and present, have trained at MGH.

Radiation Physics

The attending physicians are supported by a strong team of physicists who ensure accuracy and quality assurance in the delivery of radiation. With dual appointments and working closely with MGH, our physicists are actively involved in the development and application of new technologies and initiatives. Our IMRT program was implemented in collaboration with MGH Radiation Physics. Some programs first introduced at BMC, such as Prostate Seed Implantation and Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS), supported the implementation of these programs at MGH.

Resident Training

Boston Medical Center is one of the teaching institutions integral to the Harvard Radiation Oncology Program (HROP) along with MGH, Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH), Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI), & Children’s Hospital. All of the HROP residents rotate through our Department for a three-month long clinical rotation. Residents appreciate the diverse patient population and the often unusual spectrum of tumors and clinical issues they encounter at BMC.
