Radiation Oncology is defined as the specialty as the branch of clinical medicine that using Ionizing Radiation, either alone or a combination using other modalities for the treatments of patients with malignant or other diseases.

Radiation Oncology can be practiced as an independent Oncological specialty or may be integrated into the broader medical practice of Oncology. Radiation Oncology includes responsibility for the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up, support and care of the Cancer patient as an integral part of the multidisciplinary management of patients.

The Faculty of Radiologists and Radiation Oncologists of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland is the sole body responsible for training of Radiation Oncologists and of certifying their competence for registration and hereby reaffirms that right.

It is the basic tenet of the training programme that the patient’s interest supersedes all other considerations, particularly self-interest, and that at all times the SpR acts with a high degree of professionalism, integrity and an ethical principle of patient care. Effective communication skills are crucial to this process as well as an ability to act as part of a clinical care team.
